Our History

, About Us, CGK Consulting Group, Inc, CGK Consulting Group, Inc

The founding members of CGK Consulting Group are Michael Carlomagno (President and CEO), Joshua Gemmell (Vice-President and Secretary), and Seth Kahle (Vice-President and CFO).  They met in 2007 during the early years of their professional careers.  They worked for one of the largest Portland cement & building materials manufacturers in the United States in an engineering and professional development program.  Michael, Joshua, and Seth soon became colleagues and friends, but shortly thereafter moved on to other positions and companies where they began specializing in different engineering disciplines.

Michael, a Mechanical Engineer (BSE, PE) from California State University, Chico, left cement manufacturing to move to San Diego and develop skills as a mechanical engineer and project manager for commercial, pharmaceuticals, life science, and light industrial construction projects.  In 2011, Michael received his Professional Engineer’s license from the State of California, and continued to work in the Southern California region.

Joshua, a Chemical Engineer (BSE) spent several years working as a commissioning engineer on a newly constructed Portland cement plant in Florida.  After construction and commissioning were complete he remained on site working as a projects, process, and reliability engineer.  In 2010, he returned to his alma mater, Arizona State University, to complete a Masters degree in Construction Management.  Following his graduation, Joshua went to work for Jacobs Engineering in their process engineering department located in Tucson.

Seth, a Chemical Engineer (BSE) from the University of Michigan, left cement manufacturing to work in the Midwest at The Dow Chemical Company, which would later become Americas Styrenics, a joint venture between Dow and Chevron Phillips Chemicals.  During this time, Seth was a manufacturing capital projects engineer, and was heavily exposed to industrial process control, instrumentation, and electrical systems.  While working in the Chicagoland area, Seth returned to school for a Bachelors of Science in Technical Project Management with a specialty in Computer Information Systems.

In July, 2013 CGK Consulting Group, Inc. formally incorporated in the State of California.  The diversity of education and on-the-job experience allowed CGK to tackle complicated engineering projects from initial concept.  This diverse background also allows CGK to provide “single-source” options for our clients.

CGK is an employee owned company that is committed to community development in the areas they work.  Projects are always completed with not only the end user in mind but also those in the surrounding area who would be affected by the building or plant we are helping design.  Our passion is Integrated Intelligent Project Delivery that reduces timelines, mistakes, rework, and provides an economic solution to the challenges facing our clients.

Founded in 1994, the ACE name stands for Architecture, Construction and Engineering. The ACE program helps to mentor high school students and inspires them to pursue careers in design and construction. It’s now the construction industry’s fastest-growing high school mentoring program, reaching over 8,000 students annually.

The program also gives our youth an extracurricular activity and help those who are in disadvantaged neighborhoods or schools.
