Brent Burton

Managing Partner

From the Managing Partners

We founded this company because we thought, “There has to be a better way to positively impact the environment and our client’s bottom line, by reducing energy and water usage.” That was our macro vision at least. On the micro level, we simply thought we would succeed if we treated our future clients, colleagues, and working partners the right way. Yes, of course, we must add value for clients and compensate our team members fairly, but it was more than that. We wanted to create a company culture where our employees would look forward to coming to work every day.

We are blessed to now work beside phenomenally talented energy engineers and analysts with a passion for what they do. Just as important, they are individuals who we enjoy being around, inside and outside the office. As a team, we are all truly excited about where this journey will take us next, and we hope you will be a part of it.

Employee Spotlight

Alex Lechleiter has been with Burton for only a couple of years now, having worked on the wide variety of challenging client projects that he set out to find when he answered a call from a recruiter about joining Burton. He’s definitely the kind of guy who loves a challenge as well as spending time outdoors hiking and camping. He enjoys telling the story about his 9-mile backpacking trip (the first 6 miles uphill on switchbacks) Lake Garibaldi north of Vancouver, Canada with his girlfriend Brooke when a recruiter called him about the opportunity to join the energy engineering team at Burton. We’d like to say that it’s been all downhill from there, but he would be quick to refute that! He does love a challenge…

He grew up less than 5 miles from the Burton headquarters in Alpharetta and graduated from Auburn in 2016 with his degree in Industrial Engineering. He recalls his trip to the Rose Bowl where he watched the Florida State Seminoles beat his Auburn Tigers for the national championship as one of his best…and worst…college memories. He currently lives near Emory University with Brooke (now his fiancée), loving the “urban” life that part of Atlanta has to offer, but still plans to be back in the mountains this summer for a trip to Glacier National Park.

Alex joined the Burton team as an Energy Engineer after working for a few years for an industrial air filtration company. In his first year, he gained a great breadth of experience supporting telecom and quick-serve restaurant energy audits, water usage studies in banking offices, and helping a world-famous guitar manufacturer install a large new make-up air system at their main plant to substantially improve air balance and overall product quality. His work ethic, friendly spirit, and ability to quickly analyze and solve almost any type of problem has allowed him to become a critical part of the Burton team. His talent and broad skillset have him now serving as the main project manager leading a national rollout of proactive and energy-efficient HVAC replacements for one of Burton’s largest customers. In this role, he has made himself a seamless and valuable “go-to-guy” for the client, HVAC equipment manufacturers, and our installation vendors.

We’re excited to see all that Alex will accomplish in the future.
