Voltea appoints Dean Spatz as new chairman

“We are proud to have Dean on board and feel that his experience and knowledge will be of great value in accelerating Voltea’s growth,” said Michiel Lensink, CEO of desalination technology company Voltea.

Prior to its acquisition by General Electric in 2003, Osmonics was listed on the New York Stock Exchange with over US$200 million in sales and 1400 employees.

“I have spent many years in the water industry and it is rare to come across a company like Voltea that has a unique proprietary technology, a strong and supportive shareholder base as well as a motivated and skilled group of employees. All of these signs point to a bright future for Voltea and I am very pleased to be part of the team,” said Spatz.
