Pottinger Named to Northwest Arkansas Business Journal's Fast 15 Class

Though Ryan Pottinger, PE, has been in the engineering profession for just six years, his accomplishments and dedication to establish clean, sustainable water sources have been felt across Northwest Arkansas and beyond.

Part of Garver’s Water Team in Fayetteville, Pottinger was recently recognized for his contribution by being named to Northwest Arkansas Business Journal’s latest Fast 15 class. The list celebrates outstanding young professionals across industries within the region.

“Growing up with a dad who worked as an engineer, I had a firsthand look at how engineering impacts everything around us and knew I wanted to serve communities in the same way one day,” Pottinger said. “Clean water is at the heart of a successful community, and it’s rewarding to be part of providing that vital resource.”

Most recently, Pottinger developed a water treatment plant condition assessment for Searcy and helped develop water master plans for Tontitown and Rogers Water Utilities. He’s currently helping update Bentonville’s plan.

Ryan was also asked by company leaders to help develop the standards handbook for Garver’s Water Design Centers, including the Fayetteville center, which are hubs dedicated solely to water and wastewater innovation.

Ryan’s passion for the industry and exemplary leadership led to him being tapped to serve on Garver’s Government Relations Committee. In this role, he uses the company’s resources to build strong relationships with elected and appointed officials to determine how Garver can best partner with them to serve area communities.

At just 29 years old, Ryan — a member of the National Society of Professional Engineers and American Water Works Association — is proving to be a trailblazer in the water engineering industry and has already left a lasting impact on Northwest Arkansas.
