WGK Team

Gregory Gearhart, PE, BCEE

Senior Principal

Greg’s ability for creative problem solving can be traced back to his childhood love of building things and figuring out how they work. Following summer jobs driving dump trucks and working construction, his first job after graduating from the Virginia Military Institute brought him to Mississippi to build the Grand Gulf Nuclear Power Plant in Port Gibson and he’s been here ever since. 

Early in his career Greg learned that engineers who lack construction experience can design things that are hard to build which results in extensive field engineering — not an ideal scenario. As a founding partner of WGK, Inc. he and his construction-trained team are committed to serving clients from project conception through construction so they get the best outcome for their infrastructure needs. 

Now with over 30 years of experience as a registered Professional Engineer and Board Certified Environmental Engineer and Certified Engineer Evaluator he specializes in design and rehabilitation of wastewater treatment facilities. His mission in his work is to come alongside servant leaders and help them serve their communities well with smart infrastructure solutions. 

That work has led to a long list of awards and specialized certifications that place him as a leader in best practice wastewater design and technologies in the state. In addition he has volunteered with Engineering Ministries International where he has traveled overseas to lend his engineering expertise to developing countries.

Greg and his wife Judy have two sons and three grandchildren. He enjoys traveling in their camper, trail running and cycling.
