Our Company

Large banks often have an environmental risk manager (or department) on-staff. What about all of the banks and credit unions that don’t want the unnecessary overhead or that simply don’t have need for a full time environmental manager? Where do they turn for environmental risk management? Several years ago, the Michigan Bankers Association (MBA) asked this question. A good answer didn’t exist.

The solution appeared to be a company that could offer environmental risk management advice on an out-sourced, as-needed basis. Would this be an environmental consultant or a law firm? Each group had advantages and disadvantages, and neither seemed to have a focus on the unique problems encountered by lenders.

With the creative assistance of lenders, Yeoman Group was designed to provide banks and credit unions with senior professionals that have expertise in lending, finance, environmental engineering and environmental regulations. Now partnered with Huron Consultants, Huron-Yeoman Consultants offers solutions to banks and credit unions on an out-sourced basis, avoiding the need for an in-house engineer or geologist.

Today, we serve a multitude of lenders throughout the state. Not foreseen when created, however, was the value of the concept to realtors, developers, investors and industry. Huron-Yeoman Consultants is growing by leaps and bounds, serving you better every day.
