Biography

Matt Winefield is an engineer and businessman who has been supporting the redevelopment of contaminated properties since 1989. After redeveloping oil fields, refineries, and service stations for the California oil industry (Chevron, et al.), Matt formed his first engineering consultancy in 1997. In 2005, he added a separate engineering staffing firm to his portfolio. These two companies were successfully sold to a private equity partnership. Throughout his career Matt has added value to blighted and contaminated properties using effective agency negotiations and cost-conscious environmental strategies, thereby maximizing return on investment. He also specializes in obtaining environmental cost recovery from third parties such as government agencies, historical insurers, and potentially responsible parties. He is currently responsible for due diligence and remediation oversight of environmentally-challenged sites for a portfolio that includes outside investors. The investors are extracting considerable arbitrage from contaminated properties in premium, infill locations. Matt holds a BS in civil engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, an MS in environmental engineering from California State University Long Beach, and an MBA from the UCLA Anderson School of Management. He also maintains an active California Professional Engineering license, and belongs to several real estate, investment, and banking professional organizations.
