Michael J. Galet

Project Manager
As a kid, I always had an interest in the environment and as I grew older, I felt that it was important that my career could be impactful in a positive way. I found that civil engineering was a career path that could allow me to merge the two.

As a Project Manager, I am responsible for selling and executing projects. Over the years, I’ve developed a diverse portfolio of project types, ranging from representing local municipalities, to stormwater mitigation and environmental restoration, to commercial, residential, industrial developments. I am involved in projects from conception to completion, responsible for developing the initial proposal to managing the design team throughout the final design and construction. I am also the Market Sector Leader for Education, offering support to other Project Managers with business development efforts within that segment, while also providing oversight on forecasting and financial budgeting.

I started at Gateway as an Engineer-In-Training in 2014. Before that, I worked for PennDOT as a Bridge Inspection Intern while still in school. After graduating from college, I worked at James Construction in Carnegie, PA as a Project Engineer for almost 2 years.

As the (proud) son of a carpenter, I enjoy working with my hands, and find myself spending most of my free time on general home improvement projects. I also have a growing interest in home-brewing and RVing, and I’m a Penn State football fanatic – possibly explaining the root of those two interests. And of course, I enjoy anything my wife, Emmy, enjoys, which includes raising chickens apparently?
