George Hawkins to keynote 12th annual WaterSmart Innovations Conference & Expo
George Hawkins, former CEO and general manager of DC Water, will deliver the keynote opening address for the 12th annual WaterSmart Innovations Conference and Exposition in Las Vegas on Wednesday, October 2.
Hawkins launched his leadership and innovation-focused consulting business Moonshot LLC, and a parallel non-profit enterprise Moonshot Missions, after stepping down from DC Water, where he served for 11 years, including several as a Board member.
During his tenure, he became well known across the water sector for transforming DC Water into an innovative, customer-driven enterprise, while tripling its investment in clean water.
Hawkins serves on the National Infrastructure Advisory Council, and is a strategic advisor to Xylem, Inc., one of the world’s largest water technology companies. He also is an Executive in Residence for XPV Water Partners, a private equity firm that focuses on innovative water technologies, and as a Professor of Practice for American University’s School of Public Affairs, where he teaches graduate students about urban development, infrastructure and innovation.
Prior to joining DC Water, Hawkins was Director of the District of Columbia Department of Energy and the Environment and served as Executive Director of several non-profit organizations in New Jersey, including the Watershed Institute. He previously held senior positions with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the law firm Ropes & Gray.
