Geolex was founded by Alberto A. Gutiérrez in 1996 after the sale of Geoscience Consultants, Ltd (GCL), another environmental consulting firm which was also founded by him. Mr. Gutierrez operated GCL as President and CEO from its inception in 1983 until it was sold to BDM (now a part of Northrop Grumman Corporation) in 1994. GCL had annual revenues of over $40 million and more than 500 employees when it was purchased by BDM. After the sale to BDM, Mr. Gutierrez continued as president of BDM’s environmental subsidiary until 1996 when he founded Geolex, Inc. Geolex operates throughout the United States, Latin America and Europe from its headquarters in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
The professional staff at Geolex includes hydrogeologists, engineers and scientists along with financial and business consultants who possess extensive experience in RCRA and CERCLA issues, cost allocation, compliance and acquisitions audits and litigation support. In addition to the service areas discussed above, we have well-established in-house capabilities for fate and transport analysis, aerial photographic interpretation, forensic geochemistry and CERCLA cost allocation. Our founder and President, Mr. Gutierrez, directly oversees all Geolex projects and has served as the Principal-in-Charge on over 450 successfully completed environmental projects since 1983.
