Barge Waggoner Sumner and Cannon welcomes Justin Graham, GISP, as information management practice leader to oversee a new service that will provide the firm a breadth of information management services that includes application development, asset management, geographic information systems, technology consulting, remote sensing and mobile data collection.  

"The newly-adopted information management services at Barge Waggoner apply to every phase of an engineering project,” commented Mr. Graham. “These services will complement the firm’s traditional engineering work while adding efficiencies and creating value for our clients. Information management allows you to share resources, reduce redundancies, communicate efficiently and make the most of your data investment.”  Mr. Graham further states that information management services can streamline internal processes and increase data accuracy for projects.

With over 10 years of technology consulting experience, Mr. Graham was previously information management project manager in AMEC’s Environment & Infrastructure division. The University of Tennessee graduate serves on the Board of Directors for the Tennessee Geographic Information Council, most recently as president. He is a Geographic Information Systems Professional and also a Certified Floodplain Manager. 

“As our nation’s utilities continue to deal with aging infrastructure, the need for better information management is imperative,” stated Barney Fullington, PE, director of Water Services. “Justin brings to us a great technical expertise coupled with the ability to help utilities understand clearly the issues, constraints, goals, and solutions of information management.  Whether it is geographic information system or an enterprise wide asset management system or mobile applications to make our clients more efficient, Barge Waggoner is equipped to help.”
