“Over the past three years, we’ve made a very successful push toward operational excellence at our customers’ facilities and systems, focusing on process control plans, account management and continued improvements in safety and environmental compliance,” Burgess said. “While we’ve always provided technology-based solutions, we’re now working to fully leverage our organization’s technical services and skills. Chibby and his team will be especially focused on enhancing the value and delivery of these services to both our municipal and industrial clients.”

Chuck Voltz will assume the role of president of Veolia Water North America – West. Voltz, a 28-year veteran with Veolia Water-affiliated companies, has served in a variety of engineering, construction, capital management and business unit management roles. Since 2003, he has directed all aspects of capital program management needs for Veolia Water Indianapolis and Veolia Water North America – Central, providing leadership on more than $163 million in capital work. Prior to that, Voltz was part of Alloway’s team in the West, serving as the capital program manager and regional services manager from 2000-2003.
