August 28, 2018

Moulton, AngelaBOSTON – CDM Smith is pleased to announce that Angela Moulton was recently named the recipient of the 2018 Envi­ron­men­tal Business Council of New England (EBC) Ascending Leader Award winner. Moulton, a project manager based in Mass­a­chu­setts, received her award at the EBC Annual Summer Garden Party in Boston on August 9, 2018.

The EBC, a nonprofit orga­ni­za­tion, was the first in the United States to support and foster the development of the envi­ron­men­tal industry. The orga­ni­za­tion’s Ascending Leader Award recognizes young profes­sion­als in the energy and envi­ron­men­tal sectors who demonstrate exceptional leadership and industry involvement early in their careers. Recipients are leaders within their own orga­ni­za­tions, often acting as mentors to junior staff, providing thought leadership on critical issues, and leading teams on large-scale projects. They also represent their orga­ni­za­tions through partic­i­pa­tion in industry asso­ci­a­tions and committees, supporting the growth of the envi­ron­men­tal and energy sectors.

At CDM Smith, Moulton is responsible for success­fully delivering multi­mil­lion-dollar projects for water distri­b­u­tion systems, drainage and sewer pipelines, hydraulic modeling and regulatory compliance. Moulton leads multi­dis­ci­pli­nary design teams to navigate client needs and provide safe drinking water to communities around the United States. 

In addition to her project work, Moulton is passionate about promoting teamwork and mentoring junior engineers within CDM Smith. Previously, Moulton served as an official onboarding mentor for new hires and new staff at the firm. She was also nominated by CDM Smith to attend the Genesis Program and the Emerging Leaders Forum—two leadership-building programs offered by American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC)— and is a proud graduate of both.

Outside of CDM Smith, Moulton is an active volunteer in various engineering committees and societies both locally and nationally. Moulton’s involvement includes the New England Water Works Association (NEWWA), the Boston Society of Civil Engineers Section (BSCES) and the Mass­a­chu­setts Waterworks Association’s Legislative Committee. And as one of the founders of the Women’s Envi­ron­men­tal Network (WEN) Young Profes­sion­als Committee, Moulton works to provide a moti­va­tional forum for young female engineers to discuss career challenges and bridge the gender gap in the Science, Engineering, Technology and Math (STEM) community.  

“I’m extremely honored by this award and I am proud of the work I have done to mentor others. I truly enjoy helping young engineers find their way, and I appreciate all the leadership oppor­tu­ni­ties I have been given. Working at CDM Smith, I have learned from my mentors how important leadership skills are at work and in life, and to always be aware of how you present yourself. Being positive can be contagious,” Moulton says. 

The Envi­ron­men­tal Business Council of New England (EBC) was established in 1990 by envi­ron­men­tal and energy company executives who began meeting on a regular basis to exchange ideas and share experiences. The EBC was the first orga­ni­za­tion in the United States established to support and foster the development of the envi­ron­men­tal industry.  The goal of the EBC is to enhance business and job growth of both established and emerging envi­ron­men­tal and energy businesses.
