W. David Kimbrell
Founder & Principal
David Kimbrell founded Hall Kimbrell Environmental Services in 1982. It rapidly, became the nation's largest environmental service company, and was extremely profitable due to a laser focus on business metrics and a keen understanding of what makes value in such a unique industry. It was made up of many smaller to mid-size environmental, engineering and architectural operations that were the leaders in their area. He won the coveted US Entrepreneur of the Year award for that unique design and has been interacting with environmental-engineering owners and private equity professionals since then - buying and selling scores of companies over that period.
