Global Water Resources, Inc. (NASDAQ: GWRS) has appointed David Rousseau to its board of directors.

“David brings to our board exceptional senior-level experience specific to utilities and water resources,” said Ron Fleming, chairman, president and CEO of Global Water. “As a fourth-generation Arizonan, he has deep roots in the state, including with many metropolitan Phoenix communities and industries. David’s utility background coupled with his Arizona roots will benefit our company as we fulfill our mission to be an industry leader in water resource management and customer service, and as we pursue strategic growth opportunities.”

Rousseau has served since 2010 as the president of Salt River Project (SRP), a community-based, not-for-profit company providing water and electric power to more than 2 million people in Central Arizona. SRP is the largest provider of electricity in the greater Phoenix metropolitan area as well as the area’s largest supplier of wholesale water, delivering about 800,000 acre-feet annually to municipal, urban and agricultural water users. Earlier, Rousseau served on the SRP Council and board of directors for 20 years.

“I’m excited to join Global Water during this period of growth and expansion, both for the company and the state,” commented Rousseau. “The company enjoys many great opportunities that are supported by the increasing demand for innovative water and wastewater services in a fast-growing metropolitan area. I’ve also been impressed by the company’s implementation of Total Water Management, a holistic approach of achieving meaningful conservation within the communities they serve.”

Rousseau began his career as co-founder of Rousseau Farming Company, which grew to more than 10,000 acres and became one of the largest produce suppliers in Central Arizona.

Rousseau serves on the boards of the Banner Health Foundation, The Nature Conservancy, and the Phoenix Art Museum. He is also involved with the Greater Phoenix Economic Council, Partnership for Economic Innovation and Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee. He holds a degree in agricultural business from the University of Arizona.
