Congratulations 2017 Principals and Associates

With the ambition of solving our clients’ most complex engineering and scientific challenges, Golder relies upon the skill, innovation and dedication of our experts. We are scientists and engineers, ecologists and economists, geochemists and geologists, planners and builders, business professionals, and much more. We are more than 6,500 employees working from over 165 offices on six continents. We are passionate problem-solvers who are personally invested in both ownership of the firm, and the success of our clients.

Our work is guided by a special leadership team—our Principals and Associates—who hold a distinct place in ownership, responsibility and strategy. This month, we have appointed 12 new Principals and 32 new Associates who embody Golder’s values, are ambassadors in our communities, and deliver for our clients.

It is with great pride that we announce Golder’s newest Principals and Associates. Congratulations to the new appointees!
