Neumayer to Manage Hydro's U.S. Wastewater Business
Hydro International, a provider of products and solutions that control and treat stormwater, wastewater and combined sewer overflows, has promoted Adam Neumayer to the position of general manager of the company’s U.S. wastewater business.
Neumayer most recently served as applications manager of the wastewater unit. Prior to Hydro International’s purchase of Eutek Systems in 2008, he had held a number of positions at Eutek, including product specialist, applications engineer, project engineer and design engineer, dating back to 1998.
“Adam’s unique skills and his deep understanding of the field based on his longstanding position at Eutek Systems make him the ideal choice to lead our growing wastewater business unit,” said Steve Hides, chief executive officer of Hydro International. “The acquisition of Eutek has established Hydro as the clear leader in grit-removal technology and helped our US wastewater business prosper. We look forward to continuing our positive momentum in the wastewater business with Adam at the helm.”
Neumayer is a registered Professional Engineer in the State of Oregon, and a member of the Water Environment Federation and the American Academy of Environmental Engineers. He has earned a BA degree in Environmental Engineering at Oregon State University, an MBA at George Fox University and an MSE in environmental engineering at Johns Hopkins.
The former general manager, Steve Tansley, will return to Hydro’s U.K. operations, having completed an 18-month integration and transformation of the two businesses. Effective Jan. 1, 2010, Tansley will assume the role of director of Special Projects, reporting to the chief executive officer. He will work across business platforms on discrete and time-limited projects such as business planning, business development, business integration, project management and business system improvements. He will be based in the company’s Ely office.
