Meet Gregory Love

Gregory Love is an electrical engineer, a project manager and a Senior Associate with Lea+Elliott. In his 28 years with the firm, he has worn many other hats, as well. While a student at the University of Texas, Arlington, he began his career with the firm, working as an engineering intern. He proved to be an excellent employee and, upon graduation, he was soon given opportunities to expand his horizons and he became a key contributor to many major projects, such as, George Bush Intercontinental Airport/Houston Skyway, DFW Airport Skylink, Miami Airport North Terminal Skytrain, MIC-Earlington Heights Connector “AirportLink”, Hamad Airport APM in Qatar, and Orlando Airport APMs. Gregory currently resides in Orlando; however, he says it seems like he is only a phone call away from reconnecting with past projects as he often receives calls from family, friends and colleagues traveling through airports across the globe who say, “Hey, Gregory, I just rode on one of your trains!”

Engineering and design come naturally to Gregory. He recalls being 17 years old when his parents gave him his first computer. The night he received it, he dismantled the entire computer and put it back together. He says he had the same reaction to every new bike he was given through his childhood. He just had to take it apart and reassemble it. “Since the age of 11, I knew I wanted a career in electrical engineering,” he says. “My pastor was an electrical engineer and when he would tell me about what he did every day, I knew I wanted to do that too. Working at Lea+Elliott has been a dream come true, and the opportunity to travel the world has made it even more rewarding.” Gregory is passionate about his work and his work ethic, giving credit to the influence of two important men. “My father instilled in me my work ethic. Then, I was fortunate to work closely with [firm co-founder] Dennis Elliott for many years. I observed how he treated people and how he established the corporate culture that Lea+Elliott carries on today. The characteristics of these two men influence how I interact with my clients and how my work for each client is performed.” When Gregory is not working, life is consumed with his wife and kids. “Family is the most important thing,” he says with enthusiasm. “ On the weekends, we load up the RV and head out. We enjoy being outdoors and just being with each other. We’re a very close-knit family.” Gregory also expresses a deep love for helping others. For many years he has tutored students in his church to help them improve their math skills and he also mentors them, giving them inspiration and guidance. “ The mentoring,” he says, “is very fulfilling and has become one of my deep passions.”
