About Maureen Gainer Reilly

Maureen Gainer Reilly quickly rose to the top of the organizing industry when she launched Gainer Organizing, LLC in 2003. After six years in housing and development, Maureen started a business in what she had been doing for employers, clients, and vendors indirectly for years; getting them organized! After a year in business, she employed a team of six organizers working in Chicago’s business, residential and non-profit community. As an in-demand speaker, Maureen took her less is more organizing message to groups across the country. She has appeared on national television on HGTV’s Mission Organization and on Style Network’s Giuliana &Bill.
In 2008 while organizing for a private equity firm, Maureen was asked to manage a small project for an office build out. A construction project felt no different than taking on a cluttered house; she met with the team, identified needs, created scope, charted a schedule and then managed everyone to keep things moving. She anticipated issues and took care of them while they were still small. Simple. Word spread and project requests rolled in one after another. To be sure she was serving clients with the latest project tools Maureen attended The University of Chicago Graham School and received a certification in Project Management and Process Improvement. GO Consulting was born.
Today Maureen is working with non-profits, businesses and individuals who need someone to make it simple for them. From a $2.5 million construction project to space planning for a new craft beer tavern to organizing archives in a Catholic Church...Maureen gets it done. Contact GO Consulting to learn more.
