Water For People’s first annual Leadership Council

Dec. 30, 2014

DENVER — The meeting focused on finding solutions for global water issues.

DENVER — Water For People, an international nonprofit organization dedicated to providing access to improved water and sanitation systems and services in developing countries, hosted its first annual Leadership Council earlier this month, according to a press release.

Greg McIntyre, CH2M HILL global water market president and member of the new Leadership Council, joined Water For People CEO Ned Breslin, board chair Patrick McCann and other industry leaders for the two-day workshop to strategize around opportunities as well as programmatic and operational challenges faced by Water For People in its quest to give more people access to safe water and sanitation resources, continued the release.

“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.”

CH2M HILL has been a Water For People 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 (AWWA), stated the release.

In 2014, employees donated $250,276 to Water For People during the company’s annual Workplace Giving Campaign, added the release.

This generous donation helped bring the firm’s total contributions raised, since the program’s inception in 2003, to more than $1.5 million.
