We are pleased to announce that Dr. Nicki Pozos and Michael Johnson have joined GSI's Board of Directors as external (non-employee) members. In December, GSI's employee-owners voted to add Nicki and Michael to the Board to bring outside perspectives and insights to the Board's activities.

Nicki is an 18-year veteran of the water and wastewater industry and the founder of The Formation Lab, a firm that focuses on integrating social equity into the planning, design, and management of public infrastructure.
