Christopher J. Frackiewicz, Chief Executive Officer

Chris Frackiewicz founded ACM Consulting Corporation in 1995 after nine years of serving the environmental remediation industry. In addition to overseeing daily operations, Chris is accountable for establishing strategic direction, improving overall performance by capitalizing on synergies among business establishments, and providing guidance on all fronts, including but not limited to sales, marketing, training, hiring, resource management, and capital investments.

His intimate project involvement, understanding, and ability to consistently deliver client satisfaction no matter the job complexity or logistical constraints achieve impressive client loyalty. During initial project design and scheduling the firms, clients, architects, and engineers benefit from his “hands-on” approach, method of procedure, extensive experience, and best practice.

Through his vision and guidance, ACM Consulting Corporation evolved from purely an environmental remediation entity to a full-service abatement, demolition, and fireproofing company. Continuing to expand the firms’ capabilities, beginning in January 2020, complete electrical contracting services are available through its partner corporation, ACM Electric.

The organization’s continued growth and success is a testament to his passion for the business and commitment to complete client satisfaction.
