Meet the Team
Meet Your Estimator Brandon King!
Brandon King was born and raised in Manchester, New Hampshire. He worked as a technician for another company, and quickly advanced to Operations Manager. During that time he oversaw a crew of more than 20 technicians and assistant technicians. Brandon managed both commercial and residential projects while ensuring a smooth customer service experience.
Now Brandon works here, at Peniel Environmental, where he is our Director of Mitigation.
"One of my proudest moments working for Peniel would be when I was responding to an elderly woman's water damaged home. When I arrived, she was in tears that her home had so much damage. Over the course of three days, our team turned those tears into a smile. We took great care to preserve as much of the home as possible; she was pleased with the care we provided. Helping people each day makes me proud of what I do!"
One of Brandon's most embarrassing times at Peniel would be when he was excited about winning a difficult job....
“I came downstairs to make a copy and since I was excited about winning the job, I jumped on the last step and smacked my head on the door frame causing me to fall to the ground”
Working at Peniel has been great, lots of learning, fun, and excitement. I've learned 3 valuable lessons here 1. Don't let your failures define you. 2. If opportunity doesn't knock, build a door! And 3. Never stop learning!
When Brandon is not in the office or the field, he's usually enjoying his family. He is an avid hockey player, and you may also find him on the golf course.

Meet Your Estimator Brandon Cook!
Brandon Cook has been with Peniel Environmental for six years. Before Peniel Environmental, Brandon was working at Alene Candles in Milford as a line leader. He managed crews up to six people on the production end of candle making. After working at Alene for about four years, Brandon got offered the opportunity to work in the field at his father's company Peniel Environmental. Brandon became focused on learning as much as he could and using it to help him move up in the enterprise.
Brandon worked in the field for about four years; where he was able to learn more about mold, asbestos, crime scene, water, and fire jobs. Brandon then moved up to be an account manager, estimating, and sales. He loves sales and now focused on building a larger book of business and continuing to grow Peniel. Working at Peniel has helped develop his networking and speaking skills tremendously. One of Brandon's favorite things about Peniel would be our "e will take care of you aspect because we always try to make sure our customers are satisfied before the job is complete." One of Brandon's proudest moments at Peniel, "I was at a client's house with other inspectors, and mold professionals and no one was able to identify where the mold was coming from except for me."
When Brandon is not working for Peniel, he enjoys being outside. He enjoys hiking with his wife Lauren and dog Parker. Camping with family, and when he is not with his wife or dog he likes mountain biking, and golfing.
