Global MedService Partners Facility Operations and Maintenance

Leadership Team

Each member of the team has more than 30-years of experience in one or more of the service offerings. All have hands on leadership, management, operational and P/L experience in national, international and austere environments with key teammates. Where we lack specific hands-on experience of a service offering we have key relationships of professionals who do, and are willing to support GMP.

The Leadership Team has won and executed more than $18B of business in these markets during their professional careers and have personally had hands on success in each of these markets, usually in the specific capability operation. We have been successful because we operate ethically, transparently and honestly. For us this is a bedrock principle – our reputations and that of GMP matter much more than any business opportunity. We have insured that our key teammates and customers operate the same. We understand the difference between “Pay to Play” and providing “Subject Matter Expertise”.
