2008/2014 Robert E. Dickinson, one of the world’s leading experts in wastewater and urban drainage modeling, has joined Innovyze as Product Sector Leader. Dickinson, who comes to the company from CDM now CDMSmith, will be charged with maintaining, enhancing and supporting Innovyze's flagship SWMM5-based product line (InfoSWMM and H2OMAP SWMM as well as the GIS based InfoSewer and H2OMap Sewer), which are some of the industry’s leading wastewater and urban drainage systems design and modeling software. He will also be responsible for coordinating vital collaborative research and technology transfer with key universities and government organizations as well as developing business strategies that advance Innovye’s overall growth objectives in wastewater and stormwater systems management and heighten its initiatives in both U.S. and international markets.
Mr. Dickinson brings over thirty-five years of experience in software development and management of wastewater and stormwater planning and design projects to Innovyze. A principal developer of the industry-standard and FEMA-certified SWMM5 software, he has a distinguished background in computational hydraulics and high level simulation programming. He holds an M.E. degree in Environmental Engineering from the University of Florida, Gainsville.
“We are thrilled to bring Robert’s formidable talents and expertise to our company,” said Innovyze's President and COO Paul Boulos. “As one of the world’s leading experts in hydraulic and hydrologic modeling, he has made significant contributions to the field of water resources engineering. His unique combination of proven project engineering expertise, management skills and high-level technical capabilities is coveted in our industry.
“A number of factors make Robert the ideal leader to help Innovyze advance the state-of-the-art in dynamic sewer network modeling and spearhead the continued development of our SWMM5-based products family. They include his impressive record of leadership, impeccable reputation, key role in the USEPA Storm Water Management Model (SWMM5) redevelopment program, strong expertise in both numerical methods and hydrology/hydraulics, and in-depth knowledge of the wastewater industry.
“While he will be based in Tampa, Florida, Robert will work closely with our product development team and our clients as we step up our efforts to help communities around the world manage urban runoff and wet weather water quality problems in combined, sanitary and storm sewers and protect the ecological health of our waterways.”
“I am truly excited to be joining Innovyze,” said Dickinson. “For the past five years, I have followed the company’s rapid growth and development of an impressive product portfolio. I have always admired Innovyze’s unparalleled technical expertise and its steadfast commitment to research, innovation, product quality and customer care. I believe a breakthrough approach to systems modeling is a critical key to helping communities better manage and operate their buried hydraulic infrastructures and protect the environment. I look forward to playing a pivotal role in advancing Innovyze’s comprehensive urban drainage design and modeling product line and maintaining its leadership in the global wastewater industry.”
2014 - That was fun - an update of an announcement from the past. The original is on our website. I changed my name from Bob to Robert, the company name from MWHSoft to Innovyze and list my my actual job or jobs I have been doing at @Innovyze from 2008. I left the title alone - sometimes it is best to have a goal in life and trying to achieve the title of the announcement is something I would like to approach in my remaining Innovyze years. I probably will not reach it but I appreciate the mastery of the Paul Boulos announcements - he writes the most creative and wonderful press releases - you should subscribe to them from http://www.innovyze.com if you want to read about the future of water, sewer and stormwater. A final mention of Alight Tsai who manages http://ift.tt/1aJ2HyK and is always helpful with great images for our software and help files.
My contact info - in case you need to call me, I prefer email however.
