CCP's Board members have successfully managed landfill, site remediation, development and energy projects for over 20 years.

W. Gregory Vogt
Managing Director, International Solid Waste Association


Mr. Vogt was named the Managing Director for ISWA in 2007. As the chief executive for the Association, he is responsible for administrative, staff, and organizational functions to serve the membership and the waste industry overall. ISWA’s mission is to promote sustainable solid waste management worldwide. Mr. Vogt participates in scientific panels, training courses, and grant projects for the largest global solid waste management associations. Prior to this he served as vice president with SCS Engineers, one of the leading environmental engineering consultancies emphasizing the solid waste management field. With a strong background in waste management, waste characterization, and landfill gas (LFG), Mr. Vogt specialized in field investigations, air sampling programs, gas emissions, corrective action technologies, and alternatives analyses for public/private partnerships. Much of his consultancy work involved international waste management projects and studies. He received a B.S. in Natural Resources from the University of Michigan and an M.S. in Environmental Science from the University of Cincinnati.


Michael W. McLaughlin, P.E.
Senior Vice President, SCS Engineers


Mr. McLaughlin is a co-leader of SCS's practice in sustainability and greenhouse gas services, is a licensed professional engineer, and an active member of the Virginia State Bar. He assists development clients in the production of greenhouse gas emissions offset credits, particularly voluntary reductions of methane emissions (e.g. from landfills). He also assists clients in redeveloping environmentally challenged properties (Brownfields) for new uses, including use of innovative technologies to reduce the carbon footprint of such projects. Mr. McLaughlin has worked to change regulatory systems such as the U.S. Energy Research and Development Administration, in which he evaluated an alternative air pollution control rationale for utility plants, and for the U.S. Military developing programs to evaluate energy conservation opportunities. He holds a B.S. in Civil Engineering from Virginia Tech and his J. D. from Washington and Lee University School of Law.


Timothy R. Titus
Environmental Regulatory Consultant


Mr. Titus has served as the administrator of the Interstate Technology and Regulatory Council (ITRC) for the last five years. The ITRC is a state-led coalition of regulators, industry experts, academicians, citizen stakeholders, and federal partners who build consensus on regulatory and technical methods. These consensus approaches are then reduced to documents and training for environmental professionals and state regulators so they can deploy cheaper, faster environmental protection. Until 2004 Mr. Titus was a federal executive with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. While at EPA he served as senior advisor for small business in EPA's Office of Policy, Economics, and Innovation. From 1991 through 1995, he helped design a Presidential initiative called the United States-Asia Environmental Partnership (US-AEP), a consortium of USEPA, US Commerce Department, the State Department, and the environmental industry to introduce U.S. environmental technologies, products, and services to the burgeoning economies throughout Asia. Prior to joining US-AEP, he was Director of the Gulf Task Force that coordinated the United States Government response to oil fires and oil spills in the Persian Gulf following Operation Desert Storm. Mr. Titus earned his B.A. degree in political economy from the University of Wyoming and holds a J.D. degree from the University of Baltimore.
