Greenville Water Names New Chief Operations Officer

After an extensive search of internal and external candidates, I am pleased to announce the selection of Jeff Phillips as the new Chief Operations Officer (COO). Jeff previously held the position of Director of Water Resources since 2019.

Jeff has been a key contributor to the success of Greenville Water for many years. He has been a resident of Greenville since 1997 and served as the first superintendent of the Stovall Water Treatment Plant for ten years. Since that time, he has worked at two other regional water systems before returning to Greenville Water in 2018.

His selection was based upon his experience and his outstanding reputation both inside and outside of Greenville Water. Jeff holds a water distribution and a water treatment license, is knowledgeable of both regulations and regulators within South Carolina, has 33 years of water utility experience, and is an active member of statewide industry organizations such as WEASC and SCAWWA.

Jeff has been married to his wife, Lisa, for 30 years and has two grown children. In his spare time, he enjoys weather forecasting.

Please join us in congratulating Jeff on his new position.

Jeffrey W. Boss, P.E.
Chief Executive Officer
