GHA Announces New Service Divisions

GHA Announces New Service Divisions

As GHA expands our expertise in a wider variety of services, the rapid growth of several service lines has sparked the need to create their own divisions. Now, in addition to GHA’s Municipal, Transportation, Data Collection, Site Design, Construction/Survey, and Finance/Admin Divisions, we introduce, and congratulate the new Directors of:





GHA has provided Water Resources engineering for decades, playing a key role of many different projects. Integration with all other GHA divisions has always been important. Water Resources engineering is headed by Mei Zhu, P.E., CFM, LEED AP, who has been pivotal in GHA’s work for over 20 years. GHA is also fortunate to have Mike Warner, P.E., CFM being Principal of the Water Resources Division, following his well-known previous position as Executive Director of the Lake County Stormwater Commission.

Director of Water Resources

When GHA began providing GIS services in 1997, it was not yet known how useful GIS would become – creating management tools for a variety of organizations, including governmental, educational, recreational, and more. GIS has advanced at a rapid rate and staying in step with advances has led GHA to this point. Through technical skill and client-centric project management, Greg Newton now leads a team of GIS Analysts who serve our clients at a high level, with responsive service and scalability in mind.

Director of Geospatial Services

GHA was fortunate when Mike Grinnell retired from Lake County Public Works and joined GHA putting his extensive knowledge in the Public Works world, with an experienced eye and treasures of insight in projects that interface with public works priorities. This led to GHA introducing Water Operations services for numerous municipal clients that were in great need of assistance. This service, along with a variety of public works support services are now crucial to maintaining essential operations.

Director of Facilities & Utilities Management

Human Resources is important to any organization, but for GHA, it is even more. As a firm experiencing high growth, recruiting and on-boarding are only the beginning. GHA looks to Anika and the Human Resources Division to help develop our unique culture that embraces and advances diversity, opportunities for personal and professional growth, as well as managing a large collection of employee benefits. GHA’s HR previously operated within the Finance/Administration Division.
