Jim Mothersbaugh, Chief Executive Officer

Born and raised in Seattle, Washington, Jim spent much of his childhood conducting chemistry experiments in his parent’s basement and high school science lab, a curiosity which led him to the University of Washington chemistry department, and ultimately a Bachelor of Sciences in Chemistry. His first career with FMC corporation focused on design and marketing of new applications in industrial water treatment. After that, Jim transitioned into industrial and commercial construction development, working alongside his father before taking over the family business. Much of Jim’s middle career work included running and working for Seattle area construction firms with responsibilities ranging from estimating, project management, operations, and executive management. Throughout this time, Jim began to develop ideas around electrically-based water treatment systems and formed some smaller firms to pursue these ideas. After 10+ years of pre-development and design work, Jim started WaterTectonics in 1999 and began the journey.
