SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH Sept. 10, 2013 -- Westech Engineering's board of directors recently appointed Rex Plaizier as the company's new president and chief executive officer in the midst of celebrating its 40th year in business. The move was effective as of Sunday, Sept. 1.

Plaizier has a 27-year career with WesTech and has served as the company's president for five years. He holds master's degrees in mining engineering and in business administration. Plaizier assumes leadership at a time when WesTech has built a strong and growing brand in the industrial, mineral and municipal water and wastewater treatment markets, both domestically and internationally.

"After 40 years, WesTech is positioned, better than ever before, to earn and serve customers in all their markets. The company has differentiated itself with a reputation for listening to its customers and responding with reliable, can-do service," said Jim Larsen, chairman of WesTech’s board of directors. "As a board, we appointed Rex Plaizier to this position because we believe he embodies the principles that built the WesTech brand and will lead the company effectively into its next 40 years."

WesTech's former CEO, Steve Brewster, has successfully led the company for the past five years. During his tenure, WesTech's annual revenue increased nearly 53 percent. Brewster is known for his passion for the values WesTech has built upon. Those close to WesTech are familiar that for the last three years Brewster has fought an aggressive cancer. Brewster will remain at WesTech providing leadership for strategic WesTech projects.
