Public agencies consistently cite aging infrastructure issues, systems vulnerable to climate change impacts, and access to clean drinking water as their primary concerns. Since 1980, Consor has been a leader in water planning and design tackling these issues in the West—this year we’re focused on bringing these services to clients across North America.

“One key move in this direction is our recent addition of Strategy Director David Haywood to the team,” said Chief Executive Officer Chris Rayasam. “With his wealth of experience driving strategy for water and transportation across North America, David is focused on making those connections between our capabilities and client partners’ needs—and where we can grow to meet those needs. Where he’ll be investing energy first is expanding our water services in the Southeast and developing our national program management and construction management (PMCM) service line.”

A natural connector, David will introduce our national experts in planning (Drew Henson and Ann Quenzer), treatment (Lee Odell and Frederick Tack), reservoirs (Matt Hickey), groundwater supply and aquifer storage (Nathan Nutter), and distribution and conveyance (Tom Braatelien and Eddie Kreipe), to name a few, to our wider client partner base, starting with Florida, Tennessee, and Texas.

As communities scale up, the demand for effective PMCM has also increased. With 30+ years of PMCM experience, including managing multi-billion-dollar programs, David will use this experience to harness our teams’ full suite of services for large water and transportation projects to grow our PMCM offerings.

“What drew me to Consor was how its evolution affords us agility to meet our clients’ needs,” said David Haywood. “I’ve spent the bulk of my career managing clients’ programs from their offices, so I bring insight into how consultants can be most helpful. Since Consor is focused on the long term—how we can support our clients five years from now—we can prioritize investing back in our people. I had many mentors throughout my career, and at this stage, I want to focus on giving that mentorship back. Through creating career growth opportunities for our teammates, they can help their client partners in more and bigger ways.”

Public agencies want to work with consultants who are knowledgeable, responsive, and fulfilled. That’s why “invest in us” is a main pillar of our company strategy—see how that looks in practice here. If you’re interested in growing with Consor, learn more about us and explore open positions.
