A 1989 industrial engineering graduate of Georgia Tech, Richard has worked in the field of water pressure control his entire career. First as a manufacturer's rep for SyncroFlo, Watts Regulator, and other control valve companies, covering southeast Georgia and Atlanta. Then 20 years at SyncroFlo, in every department: Production, Purchasing, Engineering, Marketing, Sales, IT, Finance, Accounting, Field Service, Commissioning, etc. It was there that he discovered rainwater harvesting, starting in the the late 90's with Gwinnett County Schools' use of alternative water supplies for turf irrigation, cisterns in Puerto Rico, and culminating in offering treatment and pumping skids.
After a friendly parting, he founded the rep company Georgia Water Tanks in January of 2014. His goal is for rainwater harvesting to be considered on all projects where stormwater management is required.
