LATHAM, N.Y. — Water Technology is pleased to announce the hiring of Kathy Chesser as its new account executive.

Kathy has worked previously with L’Oreal developing marketing strategies and selling promotional products and with Water Technology’s parent company EBSCO Industries selling subscription services to public school libraries.

Most recently, she was employed by AT&T in its advertising and marketing departments.

“I’m excited about the opportunity to build the business and work with all of the staff at Water Technology,” said Chesser. “Moving from outside to inside sales is a welcome new venture for me. My mantra is that ‘success is within you, mindset is everything’ and I am keeping that in mind for the challenges of this new position.”

Kathy’s role will include forming partnerships with manufacturers and readers within the POU/POE water treatment industry and helping to integrate the brand’s online and print products with the concerns of the market.

“We are excited to hit the ground running with Kathy,” said Tracy Aston-Martin, vice president of business publishing for Grand View Media Group. “Her extensive experience, communication skills and great personality make her a great addition to our team.”
