Oneil Gayle

Chief Executive Officer

With technical expertise in mechanical engineering and energy services, an entrepreneurial spirit, and a gift for relationship-building, Oneil Gayle rapidly rose from a 2002 summer intern at Loring to the top echelon of the firm’s leadership team, culminating with him being named Chief Executive Officer in December 2023 after serving as Chief Operating Officer for seven years.

Oneil’s goals for Loring involve upholding the firm’s legacy of excellence in project delivery for an expanding portfolio of clients and sectors, maintaining the company’s open-door policy, and expanding its vibrant and culturally diverse community of employees. He is also keen on Loring being “the place where young engineers and professionals come to build careers, tackling the current challenges of the built environment and engineering solutions for the future.”

For more than a decade, Oneil has championed Loring’s expansion into new market sectors and geographic areas, pushing the firm’s reach beyond New York City and launching Loring’s Durham, NC; Toronto, Ontario; Gaithersburg, MD, and Philadelphia, PA offices, as well as an affiliated firm in Jamaica.

Licensed in New York, Oneil has a diploma in Mechanical Plant Engineering from the University of Technology in Jamaica and a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the New York Institute of Technology. The product of an exceptional mentoring system at Loring, Oneil has been paying it forward in his progressive management roles with the firm. He is committed to developing a diverse and vibrant work community, and to providing opportunities for continuing professional training and career advancement. Next Gen, a program started by Oneil in 2015 for high-potential employees, provides management training. Several graduates from this program have advanced to hold senior management positions as Principals and Vice Presidents.

Oneil’s influence extends beyond the firm to the industry and the community at large. He served a six-year term as a Board Member of the Building Commissioning Association, Northeast Chapter, was a member of the 2016 NYC Energy Conservation Code Advisory Committee for Commercial Buildings, and served on the ACEC New York Chapter Energy Code Committee. He currently sits on the Executive Committee for the New York State Chapter of the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC NY).
