Kevin Clutter launched CMS in 2012 to deliver customized solutions for the environmental, health, and safety compliance needs of our clients. After more than 20 years of working in consulting, private companies, and industry trade groups, Kevin decided there must be a better way to offer such specialized services in a non-biased manner that balances the technical, legal, regulatory, and business concerns of our clients. Together with a network of other professionals, CMS strives to develop client-specific long-term strategies to enable business to continue uninterrupted due to unforeseen issues, incidents, and government restraints.
