Introducing New US Team Members

Introducing New US Team Members

Tuesday, 12 February 2019

After a successful year of growing our US TAG program and broadening our technology evaluation capabilities for water utilities, we’re thrilled to welcome Julius “Ciacc” Ciaccia and Tammy Stone, who bring a wealth of industry experience and technical capability to the Isle team.

It’s an exciting time at Isle—we’ve retained 100% participation of our TAG members for over an 18-month period and have developed a strong track record in supporting utility clients to independently evaluate technologies and best practices. As a seasoned water utility leader, Ciacc is going to provide the strategic input required to ensure we’re on the right track and remain client focused. As a professional engineer, Tammy will ensure our clients are supported, whether evaluating solutions for long-term planning or to address short-term needs.
