Wallace B. (“Wally”) McGaughey has joined G2 Integrated Solutions (“G2-IS”) as a Senior Consultant. McGaughey is a Regulatory Subject Matter Expert, bringing a long and distinguished career to enhance G2-IS’s compliance oversight, training and research capabilities, as well as engineering, and operations. This key hire further strengthens the expertise and capabilities of G2-IS’s industry leading regulatory team.

McGaughey is a native of Pennsylvania but has lived most of his life in Louisiana where, early in his career, he served in operations and maintenance for petrochemical, refining, pipeline, power generation (both fossil and nuclear facilities), and high purity piping systems.

McGaughey served as the Senior Instructor at the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) Inspector Training and Qualifications (T&Q) Division in Oklahoma City for almost 10 years.
