Tech Consultant GCR Inc. Expands to Baton Rouge

Since GCR, Inc.’s acquisition last year by Connecticut private equity firm Clearview Capital, GCR has been on an expansion tear, opening new offices and hiring more employees.

A week ago they announced the opening of a new Baton Rouge office, where they are trying to line up new private sector business.  The Baton Rouge expansion comes after GCR’s opening of a new Los Angeles office, where the firm consults for Los Angeles World Airports. Sources say GCR is also looking to open a new office in northern Virginia.

Joseph Doherty, GCR’s new Chief Executive Officer brought on by Clearview, stated, “Our new Baton Rouge office allows GCR to be closer to our valued customers here in our home state and the capitol area while providing a geographically competitive option to support the gulf states, domestic and international customers and partners.  We will hire professional project managers, industry experts and software developers in the Baton Rouge market.”

The firm’s work force has increased from 110 to 130 since the acquisition, and the company says many positions are currently open for hiring across GCR’s three Louisiana locations, which include Covington. The open positions include software developers, business developers, planners and program managers.

GCR offers a broad range of consulting, planning, program management and technology-based projects and multi-year services that help clients gather, analyze and apply information.  From custom developed software solutions to information management and full-range of professional services, GCR’s client base includes those from aviation, elections, federal, state and municipal government, law enforcement, nuclear power, real estate and law firms and the private sector.
