Chelmsford, MA – Alpine Environmental announced that Theresa Hazelrigg, Kristen Peik Hettig, and Leslie Peik join President and Co-Founder Ron Peik in the ownership of Alpine Environmental, Inc. In addition, the company elected Hazelrigg, currently Alpine’s general manager, to the position of CEO.

As CEO, Hazelrigg will continue to collaborate with Ron Peik and key employees to translate ideas into functional plans for business growth. Before coming to Alpine in 2014, she held a variety of roles that included technology, marketing, and finance. During her time at Triumph Modular, she played a key role in growing the company by 500% and was promoted to VP of finance and administration. Hazelrigg says she is committed to fostering organizational clarity and efficiency, and has a passion for streamlining processes and removing obstacles in order to ensure superior results for clients and a positive, effective environment for the team.

Ron Peik will continue to be involved in the daily operations of Alpine and a voice for the abatement industry as president of Alpine and longtime board member of the Lead and Environmental Hazards Association (LEHA). Since 2010, he has been the abatement specialist for the PBS television series, This Old House. He says this management change will provide him the opportunity to dedicate more time to business development and increasing his involvement in industry associations.

Peik Hettig, marketing manager, has been a member of the Alpine team since 2015, and continues to play a pivotal role in marketing and advertising. The company’s representatives say her dedication and expertise in handling all aspects of Alpine’s marketing efforts contribute significantly to the company’s visibility, growth, and brand recognition.

Leslie Peik, marketing and client outreach, has been intimately involved in Alpine since it was founded, which representatives of the firm say allows her to effectively communicate Alpine’s mission and solutions to a broader audience, driving brand awareness and engagement. Representatives add that her background in marketing outreach and her inherent visionary attitude allow her to bring a unique perspective to Alpine.

“Theresa has been instrumental in the growth of Alpine since joining the team in 2014. We have worked closely in those ten years, and I have full confidence that Theresa will continue with the same passion, fulfilling the mission and values of Alpine. Under Theresa’s guidance, the change in ownership will play a critical role in the long-term success of Alpine and the legacy I started with my dad, Ed Peik, in 1991. I look forward to continuing my daily involvement with the company, focusing on business development, working with our trade organizations, and fostering Alpine relationships,” said Ron Peik.
