Employee Ownership

In 1986, the employees at GPD purchased the company and structured it for broad-based employee ownership. They wanted to keep the culture of our founding fathers alive and create a place that fosters our employees’ commitment to their company, their communities, their families and their industry.

Today, we all take pride in being owners. As a matter of fact, we really believe that it’s our competitive advantage. We invest in our employees’ wellness and professional development, we encourage innovative thinking and open communication and we give our people the tools to be leaders at every level of the company.

What does this mean for our customers? Fewer managerial barriers to get in the way of leading-edge design solutions. The best and brightest talent. Employees who are engaged and excited to come to work to tackle your project. We are stronger because we are united in our mission to serve our clients and, at the end of the day, we all know that it is their satisfaction that is the true measurement of our success. We’re working as one – building and growing together for the future.
