Philip Deal

Director of Quality and Engineering
Blue Wave

Philip has worked in the rural water sector for 10 years, supporting projects across sub-Saharan Africa. His early years were spent with local WASH programs in Oklahoma City, such as Wishing Well and Rwandans4water. In 2015, Philip began partnering with Water4 through the University of Oklahoma to assess their service delivery model in Ghana. Over the next several years, he was able to track their progress and evaluate the success of what has become a key enterprise partner – the first to attain district-wide coverage. It is now an honor for him to join the Water4 network and work towards a world with access to safe and Living water. His passion is to see rural water service mature in professionalism and sustainability, and see consistent health benefits for the people served.

Philip holds a PhD in Civil Engineering from the University of Oklahoma. He supports the Nebraska Cornhuskers and the OKC Thunder, and enjoys traveling and exploring new places with his wife Brenda.
