Named one of the top 40 influencers in the water industry by Global Water Intelligence (GWI), Susan Moisio is a go-to person for wet weather and conveyance solutions. Jacobs is excited to announce she will lead the company’s water solutions globally, as the new Global Director of Jacobs’ Water Market. She succeeds industry leader, Peter Nicol, who retired in November 2020, after 40 years of service.

In this Growth and Strategy role, Susan will lead a team of more than 6000 Drinking Water and Reuse, Water Resources, Conveyance and Storage, Wastewater and Industrial Water visionaries and doers to develop innovative, sustainable and technology-enabled solutions for the world’s water challenges.

Jacobs’ water team is committed to providing industry-leading infrastructure, digital and environmental expertise to address complex challenges across drinking water, wastewater, desalination, conveyance and flood control challenges, all within the company’s OneWater approach to water management.

Previously serving as Jacobs’ Conveyance and Storage Global Solutions Director, Susan is a Technology Fellow with more than 30 years of experience in capacity assessments, system integration and flow analysis. She joined the company in 2005 and her experience in wastewater planning and capital project execution includes 16 years with the Cincinnati Metropolitan Sewer District, in Ohio, US.

“Susan’s passion for her work in the water market and her dedication to advancing the technology expertise and capabilities of Jacobs’ water practitioners has led to the company’s No. 1 industry rankings by several third-party organisations,” says Senior Vice President of Growth, Strategy and Solutions, Chrissy Thom. “Under Susan’s leadership, Jacobs has earned the ranking of the No. 1 Trenchless Engineering firm for the past five years, and she has spearheaded the team’s focus on significant innovations in this field.”

Over the span of her career, Susan has contributed to the success of some of the industry’s largest and most challenging projects and programmes, including the Tideway Tunnel programme in London, US; the Ocean Outfall Legislation programme with the Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department in Florida, US; and Integrated Wastewater Planning for VCS Denmark.

Active in professional organisations, she currently serves on the Water Environment Federation (WEF) Collection Committee, and previously served on WEF’s Technical Practices Committee and as Chair of the Water Environment Federation Technical Exhibition and Conference (WEFTEC) Collection Systems Symposia.
