An expert business strategist, Caldwell brings to the role a strong understanding of organizational development and sales in the water business. He is based in Houston.

“Jason is a highly accomplished engineer and scientist who, for more than 20 years, has provided successful solutions for clients across multiple sectors, including federal, state and local government, academia, and the private sector,” said Tyler Jones, senior vice president, national Water business line executive at WSP. “It’s my pleasure to work with Jason again and I’m looking forward to revisiting our water resources growth strategy with him to expand WSP’s services across the U.S.”

For nearly 10 years, he was principal engineer and owner/operator of a meteorological and hydrological consulting firm.

Caldwell is a graduate of the University of Louisiana at Monroe with a bachelor’s degree in atmospheric sciences, weather forecasting; North Carolina State University with a master’s degree in atmospheric sciences, numerical weather prediction; and the University of Colorado at Boulder with a doctorate in civil engineering, reservoir operations optimization.
