Rachelle Gaines

Project Scheduler

This month’s employee spotlight is Rachelle Gaines!

Rachelle began her career with Gibbs & Cox as a general contractor in January of 2020, later transitioning into her current role as a full-time Project Scheduler. Prior to joining Gibbs & Cox, Rachelle worked in the Shipbuilding Industry for over 15 years, gaining valuable experience in construction welding, Ship Production Management, Post Delivery Support Planning, and Scheduling, and held a variety of leadership roles at Huntington Ingalls and BAE Ship Systems. Her experience and background as a Post Delivery Production Planner/Scheduler on the Landed Platform Dock (LPD) and Destroyer Guided Missile (DDG) class ships has enabled her to bring an immediate impact to G&C’s program scheduling. Outside of work, she enjoys traveling, shopping, and spending time with her three children.

“[the] team received very strong endorsement at Design Review #2 placing us in an excellent position for [future phases of the project].   Based on the superb efforts of G&C, they are our trusted design agent for Detail Design and will perform a majority of the design work. … I have been involved in naval combatant ship design for 40 years and have never seen applause at a design review like we received at DR2.  Well Done!”
