Matt Butler, PMP
Senior Project Manager
I am a Senior Project Manager with WLS with 15 years’ experience managing environmentally beneficial projects. I received my Project Management Professional (PMP) certification in 2019 and have been working in the mitigation industry for the past 4 years developing and managing stream, wetland, buffer, and nutrient projects in North Carolina and South Carolina. I will be focusing on projects in South Carolina and Georgia at WLS.
I have specialized experience in stormwater, stream, and wetland restoration, riparian ecology, Clean Water Act Section 404/401 permitting, stream morphology assessment, and biological monitoring. I spent my early career as a fisheries biologist working on various projects spanning the East Coast.
I graduated with a Master of Science from East Carolina University and have a Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Arts degree in Biology and Chemistry from East Carolina, respectively.
I have dedicated my career to promoting resiliency in our environment. I believe that ecological restoration and conservation are a way for nature to heal past damage while also allowing for responsible future progress.
When I am not hard at work managing projects for WLS, I enjoy spending time with my wife, 3 kids, and rescue mut. Occasionally, I get to hunt and fish!
Matt Butler is joining the WLS team this month! We are excited to expand our talented team of project managers, helping with our growing portfolio of mitigation projects. Stay tuned for more of Matt’s story.
