Calder has been the driving force behind AquaSmart and its relentless pursuit of profitable innovations since he founded the company in 2010. Drawing upon a lifetime of athletic competition, he takes a team-focused approach to challenges, building a unique leadership culture that encourages sensible risk-taking, hard work and personal accountability. Whether you recognize him from the Forbes Magazine’s Energy 30-Under-30 or towering over Bob Barker on the Million Dollar episode of the Price is Right, Calder is known for his keen intellect, warm personality and ability to get the deal done. He brings a scratch golfer’s focus to identifying the potential in diverse technologies, validating them with intensive research and bringing them to market. As a result, he has engineered and developed a series of allied proprietary products that are changing the game in a variety of markets ranging from oil & gas and concrete to lawn & garden and agriculture. When Lubbock Christian University named this former baseball player its Young Alumnus of the Year in 2017, Calder’s wife, Ceri, said “that’s nice, honey” then told him to keep an eye on their two kids.
