Joseph Campos is a graduate of Washington, D.C.-based American University (AU) School of International Service where his areas of academic concentration were in International relations and International economics. He also attended AU’s Campaign Management Institute as well as the U.S. State Department’s Foreign Service Institute (FSI) Foreign Oﬃcer Training Program.
In the early stages of his career, he worked as a Contractor for the US Agency for International Development (USAID) and later phased into the private sector where he began advising clients on large-scale infrastructure projects. Over a period of two decades, he narrowed his focus on water treatment technologies and started working first as an Advisor—and later as Government Affairs Director—for Paris-based Veolia Water|North America (at the time, Veolia Water N.A. was known as United States Filter Corporation).
During that period, he was appointed to the U.S. Strategic Water Initiative (USWI) Advisory Board, an entity that advised select U.S. Congressional Committee on the strategic importance of water resources to the U.S. economy. He was also appointed a Commissioner on the Commission of the Californias (COMCAL), a bi-national organization focused on border infrastructure issues where he served as Chair of COMCAL’s infrastructure committee.
More recently (2018), he served as Blockchains, Inc. Director of Strategic Infrastructure and worked as Blockchains’ liaison with Washington, D.C.-based Strategic Infrastructure Performance Institute (SIPI) which advised clients on issues ranging from project finance to Infratech (emerging infrastructure technologies). In connection with his work with SIPI, he was then nominated to serve as Senior Advisor to Seoul National University’s Global R&D Business Center (SNU-GRC).
In 2021, he co-founded a Nevada-based digital infrastructure investment fund that works closely with digital tech firms around the globe. The digital infrastructure funds focus areas are on investments in AI, Autonomous systems, Blockchain tech, Broadband, 5G/6G networks, Cybersecurity, EV infra, Edge computing and secure IoT device connectivity platforms. Importantly, given the fact Las Vegas hosts the largest annual technology event in the world (CES), Nevada has proven to be an ideal location to serve as global headquarters for the fund.
Joseph Campos currently serves as Honorary Consul representing the Republic of Korea in the State of Nevada. On May 24, 2023, he was named Dean of the Nevada Consular Corps (NVCC).
