Beth Brueckner, Principal


Throughout her career, Elizabeth Brueckner has worn many hats when it comes to dealing with the life cycle of tanks. From field level inspection to API certified to business owner and consultant, Beth has felt first hand the many frustrations that exist in industry. Early on, she realized that debates on profitability and environmental responsibility proved futile and polarizing, and she set to work defining the common goal posts to help propel industry forward.

Leading by example, Beth has taken a complex problem and clarified it into something simple and easy to understand. Combining tanks and technology, Beth is the founder and thought leader behind G.K. Hills Consulting Ltd and it’s innovative Tank Management System with real-time field applications that are transforming the way tank data is collected and managed.

With a “better is better” mantra and passion for doing the right thing, Beth founded G.K. Hills when she identified a need for above expectation service to Clients. G.K. Hills’ focus on environment and sustainable operations delivers unprecedented value to the Clients and communities that it serves.
