WASHINGTON — Director of Sales for Pentair-Water Solutions Jeff Hyson has joined the Water Systems Council (WSC) Board of Directors, according to a press release.

Hyson succeeds Dan Borah, who left the group after six years to pursue other interests, noted the release.

Hyson joined Pentair in 2012 as director of sales for the Electronic Protection business, stated the release. Before this he served as sales process director for the Flow and Filtration Solutions global business unit.

"You always think that access to clean drinking water is a third world problem, but WSC has really opened my eyes to its existence here at home," said Hyson in the release. "What the organization is trying to do is important and I look forward to representing Pentair and trying to make a difference."

The Water Systems Council is a national nonprofit focused on household wells and small water well systems, reported the release.
