On December 29th, 2015 Innovyze announced that its President, COO and Chief Technical officer, Paul Boulos, Ph.D., BCEEM, Hon.D.WRE, Dist.D.NE, Dist.M.ASCE, NAE, was appointed to the Design Professionals Coalition (DPC).  Innovyze is a leading global innovator of business analytics software and technologies for smart, wet infrastructure.

The Design Professionals Coalition is a highly focused and effective organization of senior executives of leading companies, and constitutes a major portion of the Design/Engineering industry.  These industry leaders embrace a philosophy of timely and effective actions to promote and protect the interests of our industry, our individual companies, and the public good.  Their activities and initiatives are designed to:

  • Educate, empower, and mobilize our members, proactively and defensively as appropriate, to influence federal legislative, regulatory, and political outcomes;
  • Provide a forum for sharing and promoting leading-edge business practices and networking; and
  • Influence the agendas and priorities of major professional, trade and construction-related organizations.

“I look forward to working with this distinguished group of our industry’s most seasoned leaders to help our clients and governments meet the challenges of rebuilding our nation’s aging and failing critical infrastructure within the boundaries of limited financial and natural resources, increasingly stringent regulations, and the looming effects of climate change,” said Boulos. “The work we do carries with it tremendous social responsibility for the safety and well-being of the public, the health of the economy and the protection of the environment. It’s vital that we understand and meet the complex industry challenges we face with sound, innovative, sustainable solutions.”

Dr. Boulos is one of the world’s foremost experts on water resources and navigation engineering, acclaimed for his practical and scientific expertise and his extensive experience in both academe and the corporate world. As a leading global authority in numerical modeling, including hydrological, hydraulic, water quality and hydrodynamic modeling, he directs the technical development of many of the world’s vanguard software applications in the industry. These include state-of-the-art software for modeling steady-state and transient flows in water distribution systems; dynamic flows in sanitary and combined sewers; 1D and 2D hydrodynamic solutions for simulating flows in rivers, in channels and on floodplains; as well as for real-time flood forecasting, warning and management for river catchments and coastal areas.

Dr. Boulos is a Diplomate (by Eminence) of the American Academy of Environmental Engineers (AAEES), an Honorary Diplomate of the American Academy of Water Resources Engineers (AAWRE), a Distinguished Diplomate in Navigation Engineering by the Academy of Coastal, Ocean, Port & Navigation Engineers (ACOPNE), a Distinguished Member of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), and was elected to the National Academy of Engineering (NAE).
