With over 30 years of professional experience, Tekulve, the company's former chief financial officer, will guide the expansion of Basin Water's sales and service operations by directing project risk assessment, financing and development of new business based upon the company's low lifecycle cost, and pay-for-performance model.

According to Mike Stark, president and chief executive officer of Basin Water, the addition of Chisholm is a continuation of the company's drive to attract the best talent in the water and wastewater services industry and to install best-in-class practices to meet the needs of its customers and stakeholders.
Tekulve played a significant role in the successful transition of the company from its entrepreneurial roots, establishing the necessary accounting, financial management and administrative systems within the company.
