Gobburi brings more than 15 years of water and environmental expertise to Energy Recovery, including desalination and business strategy experience at GE Water & Process Technologies. Gobburi will help expand Energy Recovery's presence in water markets and applications outside of desalination, including municipal transmission and distribution as well as brackish water.
“We are excited to expand into new segments of the water sector that offer significant growth potential by building upon our success and commanding presence in the global desalination market,” said Rooney. “With Baji’s unique breadth and depth of experience in water market development, organizational strategy and revenue growth at GE, we are confident in his ability to drive ERI’s leadership into new water opportunities in the US and abroad.”
