Water For People recently hosted its first annual Leadership Council. Greg McIntyre, CH2M HILL Global Water Market president and Leadership Council member, joined WFP CEO Ned Breslin, Board Chair Patrick McCann and other industry leaders to discuss opportunities as well as programmatic and operational challenges.

DENVER, CO, Dec. 19, 2014 -- At the beginning of December, Water For People (WFP), an international nonprofit organization providing access to improved water and sanitation systems and services in developing countries, hosted its first annual Leadership Council.

Greg McIntyre, CH2M HILL Global Water Market president and Leadership Council member, joined WFP CEO Ned Breslin, Board Chair Patrick McCann and other industry leaders for the two-day workshop to discuss opportunities as well as programmatic and operational challenges that WFP faces in giving more people access to safe water and sanitation resources.

"Our firm shares Water For People's vision of a world where everyone has access to safe drinking water and sanitation. It is truly an honor for me to be included as a member of the Water For People Leadership Council," said McIntyre.

"As industry leaders in the water sector, we have an opportunity to share our voice with the organization's leadership team on ways they can make an even bigger impact on the world by addressing operational and programmatic challenges," he said.

CH2M HILL has been a WFP corporate sponsor since 1991, when Ken Miller, a now-retired CH2M HILL executive, helped found the organization along with other professionals from the American Water Works Association.

In 2014, employees donated $250,276 to WFP during the company's annual Workplace Giving Campaign. It was the largest amount ever raised for WFP through a single corporate employee campaign and helped bring the firm's total contributions raised to more than $1.5 million since it started in 2003.
