Matt Jensen, CWT
Vice President of Technology & Innovation
In his role at GWT, Matt focuses on the identification and implementation of new and existing water treatment technologies, either in development or currently available for use in GWT’s current and future client base. Matt focuses on innovative new technologies that challenge the status quo of traditional treatment programs, with a continued goal of reducing overall environmental impact through chemical efficiency and reduction in water consumption.
In 2003, Matt graduated from the University of Wisconsin, Stevens Point, where he majored in analytical chemistry and minored in American history. During his final summer in college, he did an internship with a national water treatment supplier, where his interest in water treatment began. After a short time with a large commodity chemical company selling chemicals to the food, pharmaceutical, and specialty chemical industries, he went to work for a national water treatment firm selling primarily in the food and healthcare markets. Matt then went on to join a strong regional company, where he began working as a territory manager and transitioned into the role of Director of Applied Technologies.
Matt is also very involved in the Association of Water Technologies (AWT) and currently serves on the Board of Directors as Secretary. Matt earned his CWT in 2009 and hopes to one day join the AWT education committee as one of their presenters.
