HGC Engineering would like both to congratulate and welcome the following long-serving team members as our newest company associates and equity shareholders. All three of these acoustical engineers are celebrating their 10th anniversary with the company.
At HGC Engineering, we believe that our employee ownership model is at the core of our success. With these 3 latest additions, we now have a team of 16 Principals and Associates. The employee ownership pathway was established as a way to make our top talent a part of the leadership within our firm.
