The day after college graduation, Pacchiana became a full time engineer at Thalle. In the mid 90’s, Pacchiana- seizing on the economic growth and population trends in the Southern portion of our country, saw the Carolinas as a substantial and sustainable new market for the firm and began directing the inroads there.

This was the first time the organization has bestowed that level of honor on an individual in the mining and construction industry. He is also a supporter of Scenic Hudson, Riverkeeper, The Fresh Air Fund and Glynwood.
