Josh Burrows, President and CEO
Josh Burrows started Environmental West Exploration when the environmental drilling industry was developing in 1987. With 100 years of family drilling history, Diamond Drill Contracting Company gave Josh the ample experience and the knowledge needed to start this company.
Josh is involved with the daily operations of Environmental West. Even before a job begins, he enjoys talking with the clients to provide them with solutions to insure a smoothly run project.
Josh has a great interest in the Gonzaga Bulldogs basketball team and we think he has adopted them all! You are sure to find him at all the team games.

Diana Skaar, Administration Assistant
Dianna Skaar has rejoined the Environmental West Exploration team after a brief leave. With over 12 years of experience in the industry, she provides a knowledge base that facilitates smooth operations with regulatory agencies, permitting, accounts receivable, invoicing and bidding.
Dianna can be found in and out of the office with Patch, her Border Collie, and is planning on jumping out of a perfectly good airplane sometime soon.
Zach Gourde, VP/Operations Manager
Zach Gourde comes to Environmental West Exploration after 9 years of professional basketball in France. You might remember Zach as a member of the 1998 Gonzaga Bulldog basketball team that took the Zags on a great run for the National Championship with an Elite 8 finish. He was also on 2 Sweet Sixteen teams for the Zags.
While this is his first time behind one of our desks, he has been in and out of the office for the last 15 years. We are looking forward to him getting to know all of our clients in the near future.
Zach has hung up the sneakers, but he will be on the sidelines cheering his Zags on this coming season.
