Welcome to CDM Smith.

Jayson D. Brennen, GISP

Vice President, Senior GIS Specialist

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.
