At WSP USA, a renowned engineering, environmental, and professional services company, Tyler P. Jones has been promoted to the position of Water National Business Line Executive. Jones will take over as leader on January 1, 2023.
In his new position, Jones will organize and position the company for success, connect with clients and prospects, work with partners and peers, and develop the firm’s brand authority in the market.

According to Lou Cornell, president and CEO of WSP USA, “Tyler has almost three decades of industry experience and is an experienced leader who will drive development and operational excellence to meet WSP’s ambitious goals in the vitally important Water sector, “Tyler has been a good fit for our team since joining WSP in September when E&I was acquired. We anticipate his leadership in the coming year.”
