June 11, 2015 -- The National Association of Clean Water Agencies' (NACWA) board of directors recently announced that it has appointed Adam Krantz as the organization's new chief executive officer (CEO).
Krantz, who has been with NACWA since 2001 and currently serves as its managing director of Government & Public Affairs, was selected to be the next chief staff executive after an extensive nationwide search. He will assume the CEO position on August 1, 2015.
"The Board engaged in a very deliberative process during our search for our next executive, and during the finalist interviews, Adam delivered himself as the best candidate to build on NACWA's existing level of excellence and take our organization to even higher levels," said Karen Pallansch, NACWA president and Alexandria Renew Enterprises CEO.
"His knowledge about the key advocacy issues facing our members, his vision for the future, and his passion for our organization were key to his unanimous selection," she continued.
Ken Kirk, NACWA's current chief executive, added, "I have had the privilege of working with Adam over the past 14 years, and I know first-hand he has the skills and talents not only to continue the excellent advocacy work NACWA has done on behalf of its members for the last 45 years, but also to lead NACWA's fantastic staff and members in blazing new trails for the Association and the municipal clean water community."
This succession marks an important milestone for NACWA. Not only is the organization welcoming a new CEO in August, it will also be celebrating its 45th Anniversary in July at its upcoming Summer Conference in Providence, R.I.
The NACWA represents the interests of more than 300 public agencies and organizations that have made the pursuit of scientifically based, technically sound and cost effective laws and regulations their objective. NACWA members serve the majority of the sewered population in the United States and collectively treat and reclaim more than 18 billion gallons of wastewater daily.
