Toxicological & Environmental Associates, Inc. - Experts
MICHAEL D. CROUCH, Ph.D.
Dr. Crouch is the founder, President and CEO of Terrabase™, Inc. and one of the nation's foremost experts in the area of environmental data management, as both an analytical chemist and an environmental toxicologist. He developed the TerraBase® system, and has worked extensively in the areas of analytical toxicology, data validation, and forensic data analysis for over 30 years. Dr. Crouch has served as an expert in these areas in at least 15 cases and specializes in using spatially enabled data management systems and data validation to support his clients in data intensive litigation.
In the 12 years since it was founded by entrepreneur and chemist Dr. Michael Crouch, TerraBase Inc. has developed a number of software systems designed to manage chemical and geographical data.
Crouch comes to the business with an impressive background: He has 30 years experience in analyzing and managing environmental data and founded a laboratory that became one of the first to qualify for the Federal Contract Laboratory Program to analyze data from Superfund sites. In 1990, he struck out on his own by founding TerraBase Inc. "They can look at hundreds of megabytes of information over a normal modem," says Crouch. The information can be easily shared with select individuals such as engineers, consultants or lawyers. "Whoever has permission can access all or part of the data, wherever they are, and that's a big deal," says Crouch. He adds that while numerous companies provide scientific data management services, very few, if any, provide a Web-enabled application. TerraBase Inc. has carved out a niche in the environmental information management industry, which is clearly on the rise. A recent study by Boston-based market research firm BTI Consulting Group Inc. says the environmental management information systems industry will reach $6 billion by 2005 and is growing at 35% per year. TerraBase Inc.'s piece of the pie is relatively small, but Crouch is confident his company will grow along with the industry. The company was recently valued at $25 million and he expects to increase it's market value to $100 million over the next two years. Early this year, TerraBase Inc.'s growth prompted Crouch to raise venture capital for the first time since the company was founded. TerraBase Inc. used the funds to move its software to the Web, build a data center, purchase the powerful servers that run TerraBase and begin an aggressive sales and marketing campaign. Crouch says the company raised $2 million of it's $5 million goal. "We're in the growth phase right now," says Crouch. As TerraBase Inc. beefs up its offerings, it will be adding to its staff of 20 before the end of the year, says Crouch.
"The web-based version of TerraBase Inc.'s popular TerraBase software allows users to organize, update, and access important data from environmental remediation projects from anywhere there is an internet connection," explained Michael Crouch, President, TerraBase Inc..
