The Board of Directors of the National Association of Clean Water Agencies is pleased to announce it has selected Adam Krantz as its next CEO. Krantz, who has been with NACWA since 2001 and currently serves as the Association's managing director of Government & Public Affairs, was tapped to be NACWA's next chief staff executive after an extensive nationwide search. He will assume the CEO position on Aug. 1, 2015.

"On behalf of the NACWA Board of Directors, I congratulate Adam on his selection as our next CEO and look forward to an even stronger future NACWA," says Karen Pallansch, NACWA president and CEO of Alexandria Renew Enterprises in Alexandria, Virginia. "The Board engaged in a very deliberative process during our search for our next executive, and during the finalist interviews, Adam delivered himself as the best candidate to build on NACWA's existing level of excellence and take our organization to even higher levels. His knowledge about the key advocacy issues facing our members, his vision for the future and his passion for our organization were key to his unanimous selection."

"The Board of Directors could not have made a better selection to be NACWA's next CEO," says Ken Kirk, NACWA's current chief executive who will be retiring at the end of July after nearly 40 years of service to the organization. "I have had the privilege of working with Adam over the past 14 years, and I know first-hand he has the skills and talents not only to continue the excellent advocacy work NACWA has done on behalf of its members for the past 45 years, but also to lead NACWA's fantastic staff and members in blazing new trails for the Association and the municipal clean water community."

This succession marks an important milestone for NACWA. Not only is the organization welcoming a new CEO in August, it will also celebrate its 45th anniversary in July at its upcoming Summer Conference in Providence, Rhode Island.

NACWA represents the interests of more than 300 public agencies and organizations that have made the pursuit of scientifically based, technically sound and cost effective laws and regulations their objective. NACWA members serve the majority of the sewered population in the United States and collectively treat and reclaim more than 18 billion gallons of wastewater daily.
