Fayetteville-based water treatment solutions company BlueInGreen has named Scott Goodson as its new chief financial officer, according to a press release.

Goodson brings more than 20 years of experience in business operations, strategic planning, tactical execution and technology implementation to BIG. He previously served as senior director of technology at Wal-Mart Stores and before that held positions at Walmart International, Sam’s Club and Walmart US.

In addition, Goodson has helped to establish and grow a number of startup companies. “Throughout his career, he has consistently delivered substantial results in both small- and large-scale organizations in a wide variety of industries, business structures and market types,” according to the press release.

“I am profoundly honored and humbled to be part of BlueInGreen,” Goodson said in the release. “The company has a compelling mission, a world-class technology and incredibly creative minds at work at every level of the company. I’m happy to be here at BIG, but more importantly, I’m happy to be part of its story. We are scientists, and it’s our application of science that not only makes us different, but makes us better.”

Goodson earned his bachelor’s degree in economics from the University of Kansas.

“From both a personal and professional standpoint, Scott shares our values, our goals, and our mission,” national BIG sales manager Thomas Sichz said in the release. “With BIG’s exponential success and Scott’s proven track record, we’re in an ideal position to make a lasting impact on how people, cities and businesses collectively approach water treatment.”

Co-founded by two University of Arkansas professors in 2004, BIG designs and builds the most efficient water treatment solutions in order to lower the total cost of treatment while improving water quality. The company has expanded its core technology to include seven flagship solutions, capable of countless applications in the oxygenation, pH adjustment, oxidation and odor control markets.

BIG currently has more than 40 installations in operation, treating nearly 1 billion gallons of water each day and collectively saving end users over $20 million annually, according to the company.

“From top to bottom, BlueInGreen is built to disrupt the industry,” Chris Milligan, president and CEO said in the release. “Though our turnkey technology and award-winning solutions are both integral to accomplishing that goal, we are also focused on developing alternative delivery models, designed to allow more clients to capitalize on BIG’s short- and long-term cost savings. Scott’s passion and expertise will be instrumental in this endeavor.”
