Andrew Parisi

Air Quality
Program Director

Andrew has worked as an environmental professional specializing in the oil & gas industry since 2007. After graduating college, he worked for a small environmental engineering firm at superfund cleanup sites in the New York City area. An opportunity arose for Andrew to begin his career in oil & gas, so he and his wife moved to Denver, where he has worked on numerous projects and expanded his resume over the years. Andrew has extensive experience in areas including: Title V Permitting; air dispersion modeling; air quality compliance; stack testing; gas, liquid, and soil sampling; air quality compliance auditing, environmental management system auditing; and soil and groundwater remediation. In his previous role, Andrew served as the senior director of environmental and permitting for a midstream operator with assets across the country. Over the course of his career, Andrew has garnered a reputation for being an attentive and supportive leader, and for having a steel trap for details.

Andrew earned a bachelor’s degree in Environmental Studies from Ithaca College, where his coursework focused on environmental law. As Program Director with Spirit, Andrew leads the Rocky Mountain Region Air Quality Program. In this role, he provides technical guidance and expertise, mentors and leads the team, and fosters Spirit’s continual growth mindset while maintaining their reputation as a leading air quality service provider.
