BSC Companies’ Board of Directors has elected Ingeborg E. Hegemann as Interim President of the firm. Ingeborg has been providing consulting support to BSC and its clients since retiring from full-time work in 2019. Her involvement with BSC employees at all levels is built on a strong foundation of mutual respect and trust, that for some has extended for decades. The Board and officers of the firm are excited to see Ingeborg take on this new role to help steer BSC toward continued growth, provide top-notch service to clients, and foster great career opportunities for our dedicated professionals.
Ingeborg has a long and celebrated history at BSC. Immediately prior to her “semi-retirement” in 2019 she served as Executive Vice President and Chair of the Board. She directed the firm’s Ecological Sciences Group and managed the Worcester, MA office.
“Ingeborg’s perspective, based on years of experience and success ‘working her way through the ranks,’ brings new energy, vision, and wisdom to BSC,” shared David Hayes, Chair of the Board. “She has graciously agreed to step into this role as Interim President to help BSC clarify and steer its path forward in a way that will engage all stakeholders, ensure transparency, and promote employee growth opportunities.”
In addition to her management and leadership experience, Ingeborg has 40 years of consulting and volunteer experience in wetlands assessment and impact analysis, and regulatory permitting at the local, state, and federal levels. Her experience is multidisciplinary and includes technical and scientific as well as legal and regulatory knowledge and practice. She serves on her local Conservation Commission and Community Preservation Committee.
Ingeborg is an adjunct professor in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at the University of Massachusetts Lowell Francis College of Engineering. Courses include graduate level wetland ecology and undergraduate level Engineering Ethics and Professional Practice as well as Environmental Lab. She received her undergraduate degree in Geology from Skidmore College and her Masters in Regional Planning from the University of Pennsylvania. She has been the recipient of several awards for her years of experience, including the Worcester Business Journal Hall of Fame in 2021 and the Massachusetts Association of Conservation Commissions: Outstanding Achievement in Conservation in 2015.
