Consulting Solutions that Work for People and the Environment

The Founding of Gomez and Sullivan

The idea of Gomez and Sullivan Engineers became a reality in February 1993. Founding principals Jerry Gomez and Tom Sullivan planned to create a successful water resources engineering and environmental science firm by providing quality consulting services and maintaining a strong client base. The original two home office locations - one in Utica, NY, and the other in Weare, NH - have since expanded to four offices with a staff in excess of 40 knowledgeable and experienced engineers, environmental scientists, and computer information specialists.
