Former deputy commanding general for U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Civil & Emergency Operations to lead water resources service line expansion
Dewberry, a privately held professional services firm, announced the addition of retired Maj. Gen. Michael J. Walsh as director of water resources and coastal resiliency. Most recently in his position from 2011 to 2013 as deputy commanding general for civil and emergency operations for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), he was responsible for a $10 billion annual program supervising all civil works activities nationwide, and 24,888 employees who operate and maintain infrastructure valued at $232 billion.
“With his experience delivering water resources solutions to our nation and responding to major flooding events, we know that Mike’s strengths, accomplishments and leadership are a great fit with Dewberry’s work history,” said Donald, E. Stone, Jr., CEO of Dewberry. “He will help Dewberry expand its support of communities that have critical resiliency questions and water resources engineering needs, especially in the Gulf Coast and along the eastern seaboard.”
Walsh served his country for more than 36 years. He received his Master of Building Construction degree from the University of Florida, and his Bachelor of Science degree in civil engineering from the Polytechnic Institute of New York.
“I am excited to join the Dewberry team,” Walsh said. ”They are large enough to deliver and small enough to still care.”
