Jayson D. Brennen, GISP
Listening to clients’ needs and working collaboratively to develop innovative, creative solutions is what continues to inspire Jayson after nearly 25 years at CDM Smith. Jayson leads the Management & Technology Consulting group and has experience in the design and implementation of geographic information system (GIS) and technology solutions for governmental agencies, utilities, airports and private organizations. As one of CDM Smith’s most senior GIS program managers, he has helped more than 100 municipalities, utilities and other agencies implement geographic-based technology solutions. These range from enterprise-wide GIS environments to technology solutions that support large utility program management to custom GIS-based environments.
How might clients describe you? Energetic, passionate, and innovative.
Which one of CDM Smith’s core values do you identify with most and why? “Initiative” because one of my favorite things professionally is to create projects where none existed.
What’s something you enjoy doing on your day off? Spending time with my family by fixing up the old ’78 truck with my son, attending my daughter’s college volleyball games and watching my wife run Spartan races. I also like hiking in the woods, going to the gym and hanging out with my friends.
What’s something that people might be surprised to know about you? I am the co-anchor of a bi-weekly newscast in which my friend and I report on small-town topics in our community via Facebook live. It’s funny… we do it live from various locations like the town bar, dump, farm stand, some guy’s barn, my basement, etc. We get 1,000-2,000 viewers and have had articles written about us in the local newspapers.
