In the early 2000s, colleagues John Morrison, George Gilpatrick, and Joseph Lofgren comprised the entire staff of the transportation consulting division of a large defense logistics contractor. Based in a small office near Fenway Park in Boston, the three worked closely with the Federal Transit Administration and the US Department of Transportation on several safety projects.
In time, the three associates formed an independent company to compete for opportunities in the transportation oversight arena. In the summer of 2005, they formed Cahill Swift, LLC, and relocated their offices to the Boston waterfront.
Since then, Cahill Swift has grown into a full-service consulting firm with offices in Boston and Minneapolis, and with a team of professional industry experts and investigators serving a diverse portfolio of clients.
