Jason Brooks believes well-maintained public infrastructure provides the foundation communities need to grow and thrive. Nine years ago the Knoxville Utilities Board selected Brooks to manage its 10-year, $530 million PACE 10 program in response to a federal mandate to improve the city's wastewater system and comply with the Clean Water Act. Brooks left KUB in 2011 for an opportunity to start a similar program in Nashville for Metro Water Services. Then, in 2012 Lamar Dunn approached him about taking over as president of the employee-owned engineering firm Dunn founded three decades ago. Since joining LDA Engineering, Brooks, along with the LDA team, has renewed the LDA Engineering brand as a small, client-focused company that brings innovative and sustainable solutions to the projects and communities it serves.
Jason currently serves as president of the Maryville College National Alumni Board, a member of the Maryville College Board of Directors, an elder of New Providence Presbyterian Church, and is an active member of the Blount County community.
