Energy Recovery, Inc. (Nasdaq: ERII), a trusted global leader in energy efficiency technology, today announced Joshua Ballard has made the decision to step down from his position as Chief Financial Officer at the end of June 2024. A search to identify Energy Recovery’s next CFO is underway with the executive search firm Korn Ferry.
“I want to thank Josh for his tremendous leadership and contributions to the success of Energy Recovery. He is leaving a stronger organization both operationally and financially than he found it. Josh has agreed to help us through an orderly transition in the coming months as we work hand in hand to identify his replacement before June 30th, which will ensure we continue to grow and build on our financial strength,” said David Moon, President and Chief Executive Officer of Energy Recovery.
Mr. Ballard joined Energy Recovery in 2018 and has helped steer the company to multiple years of consecutive revenue and profit growth, as well as a strong cash position, important assets as Energy Recovery continues to diversify beyond its core desalination business.
“I have greatly enjoyed my nearly six years at Energy Recovery with this incredible team and I am proud of the progress we have made since I arrived. My departure is a decision I came to some time ago, as it is simply time for me to move on to new challenges. I have been very supportive of David as our permanent CEO, and I believe he is the right choice at this phase of the company’s expansion. I have no doubt Energy Recovery has a bright future ahead. I look forward to working closely with David and the team to ensure a seamless transition,” said Mr. Ballard.
