  • About the opportunity

    SWCA Environmental Consultants is seeking a Water Business Line Lead for the Texas/Gulf Coast region. You will work with our senior management and project managers in Houston, Baton Rouge, Austin, San Antonio and Arlington to take maximum advantage of SWCA’s existing contractual relationships with state, local and private water agencies.  You will also use your professional relationships and expertise to expand SWCA’s footprint in coastal restoration and water infrastructure work.  This is a regular, salaried position eligible for bonuses based on performance and our Employee Stock Option Program retirement plan.

    Our five offices in the Texas-Gulf Coast region are growing and we need a motivated business development leader to flourish with them.  SWCA is one of the largest purely environmental consulting firms in the U.S with over 500 environmental and cultural resource professionals.  SWCA provides clients with solutions in areas such as ecological restoration, stormwater testing and pollution prevention planning, Clean Water Act and National Environmental Policy Act compliance, hydrogeological assessments, mitigation banking, environmental site assessments, endangered species planning, and cultural resource compliance. 


     You will serve as a business line leader, working with our offices and corporate leaders to identify the best opportunities for SWCA in the Texas/Gulf Coast.  You will meet with agencies and clients, both existing and prospects, and inform them about SWCA’s range of services and increase our business profile.  Projects brought in or led by you will benefit from your quality control expertise and direct management, where warranted.  The position will also help Texas/Gulf Coast offices enhance their marketing materials and identify improved procedures to assure client needs are met.
