When Hugh Golder established the firm in 1960, he created a model based on his belief that as owners, employees would have a stronger commitment to delivering the very best solutions for clients. The shared ownership model has grown and more than 50 years later, Golder is still proud to be wholly employee-owned. While employees own the company, our Principals and Associates hold a distinct role. These leaders embody Golder’s values, they are ambassadors in our communities and are responsible for shaping strategy locally, regionally and globally.
“I feel very honoured and privileged to be named as an Associate – it gives me great pride,” says Aiden Stoop, one of this year’s appointees and an Environmental Scientist in Johannesburg, South Africa. “The added responsibility in joining the Principal & Associate group means we are ultimately accountable for the company’s success and I believe this accountability, along with strong technical dedication and commitment translates to client benefits.”
Darren Paul, a Senior Engineering Geologist and 2016 Principal, located in Melbourne, Australia says, “We all want to be recognised for our hard work, knowledge and experience. Receiving that recognition by being invited to join a group of some of the world’s best science and engineering professionals, is not just an incredible career achievement – but a life achievement, as well.”
“As owners we are personally invested in the success of our clients. We care because delivering technical and client service excellence is good for our clients, and that is good for our business,” explains Louise Menard, Principal and President, Americas region. “We are passionate about what we do and I believe being an employee-owned company differentiates us – we care, and it shows.”
Because of this powerful ownership culture, Golder people around the globe are committed to, and invested in, delivering excellent results for our clients, earning recognition as a world leader in our industry.
It is with great pride that we announce Golder’s newest Principals and Associates. Congratulations to the new appointees!
