Culture & Values
We at The GEL Group are driven by our Core Values.
Our values motivate and inspire us and guide every client engagement. GEL was conceived with strong values — founders George and Molly Greene instilled their passion for excellence and their dedication to responsive service, flexibility and expert project management into the very DNA of the company.
The result is a people-focused organization that strives to bring together the brightest minds — with the broadest industry and functional experience — in a range of environmental and technical fields.
The company culture is one where honesty, integrity and respect form the basis of all internal and external relationships, and where innovation and a passion for solving problems are prized.
