After coming on as Deputy General Manager of Monterey One Water in September 2014, Paul Sciuto took over as General Manager in June 2015 and has been key to strengthening and maximizing the Agency’s commitment to the community. Paul arrived at a critical time when technological advancements and aging infrastructure presented new opportunities for Monterey One Water. His decisiveness was needed to modernize, increase efficiency and accountability, and promote new and innovative thinking. Already devoting more than 25 years of his career exclusively to the potable water, wastewater, and recycled water sectors, Paul is a longstanding, respected member of the industry.
Paul believes in simple, if not challenging mottos: Do the right thing. Do the best you can. Take care of the people around you. Treat others as you want to be treated. These deceivingly astute charges are not only demanded but exemplified by Paul. He believes environmental superheroes can only be effective if they know their ‘kryptonite,’ and he builds diverse teams with this core-belief in mind.
Paul enjoys spending time with his family, heading to the outdoors, and his second cup of coffee. Despite the many hours now spent behind a desk, he remains a hands-on engineer, designing and fabricating custom skateboards for his kids and himself to ride.
Paul combines an advanced theoretical and practical understanding of multiple disciplines including engineering, finance, business management, and government affairs. Combining these skills with clear communication, Paul works closely with the Board of Directors to ensure the efficient and economical performance of all Agency operations.
Prior to arriving at Monterey One Water, Paul spent over 10 years with the South Tahoe Public Utility District as an Assistant General Manager and Engineer. He also obtained experience in the private sector as a Principal Engineer, Director of Business Development, and Director of Government Services for an engineering consulting firm.
Paul is a courageous advocate for sustainable, long-term water solutions, but he is not fearless, as clowns remain a source of anxiety for our otherwise unflappable leader.
