Marianne Horinko, President of The Horinko Group, notes, “I’ve had the pleasure of working with Gordon from the days when he ran EPA’s Federal Facilities Enforcement Office.  Gordon broke through bureaucratic and legal barriers to forge strong commitments from the Departments of Defense and Energy to environmental protection.  We look forward to having the benefits of his expertise in private sector finance and technology development.”

Mr. Davidson has founded or co-founded several successful companies including Capital Environmental which provided litigation support, technology commercialization, and brownfields services; IES Corporation which provided Fortune 100 clients a unique insurance coverage settlement model for contaminated sites resulting in over $3 billion in recoveries; which was an internet platform for the buying and selling of insurance world-wide and was sold to a European insurer; and a new venture utilizing ground-breaking sensor technology to detect environmental pollutants and reduce energy usage.

As CEO of Micronic Technologies he led the commercialization of a new water separation and desalinization technology, as President of Davidson Energy Group LLC he was retained by the Department of Energy to provide strategy advice on its Energy Parks Initiative (EPI) designed to convert portions of its sites undergoing cleanup into clean energy parks, and as part of the Unified Energy team he brings energy efficiency and energy reduction solutions to the private sector.

Under the first Bush Administration, Gordon was appointed the first Director of EPA’s Federal Facilities Enforcement program overseeing the cleanup of military bases and DOE’s nuclear weapons production sites where he led EPA’s policy role on the cleanup and redevelopment of closing military bases (BRAC).  A seasoned negotiator, public speaker, and facilitator, Gordon brings clients a powerful set of skills for forging solutions to the most intractable environmental, water, and energy challenges.
