Again, for the second year in a row, GATE has been named as the #1 HOT FIRM in the 2016 Zweig Awards. GATE steadily progressed through the HOT FIRM list over the last seven years (63rd, 47th, 37th, 29th, 19th, and then 3rd) finally reaching 1st place in 2015 and now again in 2016.
For Grant Gibson, Founder and CEO of GATE Inc., it's hard to believe that it has been 15 years since GATE was started on Michigan Street in Houston with a plastic table and desktop computer from Sam's Club.
"I was 28 years old with a Nokia phone, AOL dial-up, and the price of oil was about $15/BBL. My mom loaned me the money to start GATE and she doesn't let me forget it either, even to this day," Gibson said. Fifteen years later, GATE is an award-winning oil and gas engineering consulting firm offering numerous services in the areas of commissioning, engineering, marine services and marine construction around the globe.
