Donald Perry

President and CEO

Donald Perry is the Chief Executive Officer and President of BioRemedial Technologies which he founded in 1993 with a vision of remedying environmental problems using natural methods. Prior to his current professional endeavors, Mr. Perry was a managing partner of a successful coal and limestone mining company, for which he was instrumental with branching-out into several other businesses including restaurants, housing developments, hotels and a full service golf country club. Don’s responsibilities consisted of overseeing sales, future land leasing, developing mine leases, spearheading financing projects, and mine-site reclamation and environmental permitting through federal, state, and local government agencies. This extensive industrial and commercial background gives Mr. Perry a unique prospective on how environmental regulations can affect the business cycle. He started BioRemedial Technologies to help other business owners and operators navigate regulations and also to develop new technologies to remediate environmental contaminants. With multiple decades of executive leadership on both sides of the environmental spectrum, Mr. Perry has learned the importance of balancing environmental issues and the resulting costs. This knowledge and experience makes Don a key attribute in solving any environmental, regulatory, or managerial problems that one might face in conjunction with normal business operations. “I enjoy the challenges that difficult problems present and finding the most efficient, timely and cost sensitive approach to each and every one of our projects.” Email Don at or call 724-981-1994

Matthew Perry

Vice President and COO

Matthew Perry started his career in the environmental field in 1999 while attending Grove City College for a B.A. in Economics with a focus on environmental studies. Starting as a field technician and working his way through almost every aspect in the environmental field, Mr. Perry gained valuable knowledge and skills that makes him a great asset to any project. He continues to build on what he learned from first hand experiences by attending classes and seminars to further his education and understanding of new technologies and environmental issues. Matthew volunteers his free time to aid non-profit groups, local businesses, and residents who have environmental concerns and advises them on how to address these issues. As Vice President of Operations, Mr. Perry oversees projects from conception to implementation through site closure. Matthew will work closely with his clients throughout a project to ensure work is being carried out as efficiently and cost effective as possible. Email Matt at or call 724-981-1994

Tyler Perry

Vice President and CFO

Tyler Perry has been working with BioRemedial Technologies since 2005. His business background brings a unique perspective to the environmental industry. Mr. Perry graduated from The University of Pittsburgh with a B.A. in Economics and continued his education at Youngstown State University earning his Masters of Business Administration (MBA) with a focus on management. These skills allow Tyler to understand the weight that regulations can have on the business process and how costly certain environmental practices can affect the bottom line. Teaming these skills with the technical approaches of other key personnel from BioRemedial Technologies allows Mr. Perry to blend the business world with the scientific world. He prides himself on focusing his efforts on remediation instead of wasting time and money on unnecessary studies. Mr. Perry has worked with many consultants and has seen even more remediation approaches. His experience allows for the most efficient and applicable approach to be chosen for a specific site. Please feel free to contact Mr. Perry anytime with questions you may have about bioremediation as a whole or about a unique contaminant or site issue you may be facing.

Past experience has also taken Bert into the areas of mining and coal exploration as manager of a U.S. Steel Corporation regional office. Mr. Richnafsky received his M.S. in Geology from West Virginia University, where he did his masters work under the direction of U.S. Steel’s world renown coal research team. His experience and contacts over the years have enabled Mr. Richnafsky to clearly understand how things interact in the natural world whether it be in the environmental, mineral industries or compliance fields. As he states, “It truly pleases me to clean-up the sins of the past by focusing on completing the task at hand and not just studying the situation.
