The nonprofit Water Systems Council earlier this year named Grundfos’s Dan Story as president. Story serves as the company’s business development director of water intake.

“It’s an incredible honor to be named the president of an organization that does so much to protect and promote the groundwater industry,” Story says. “Private wells are an underutilized resource in addressing our water infrastructure problems in the US. We as an industry must educate the general public on modern water well systems and how they are very effective in delivering safe, clean water to Americans.”

As vice president of business development Story, a third-generation groundwater professional, oversees global business development for the groundwater, irrigation, solar and flood control markets. He has spent 17 years with Grundfos, including serving as vice president of sales for groundwater and irrigation business in the U.S. from 2012 to 2020.

The Water Systems Council’s mission is to protect and promote well water systems. The organization educates well owners, consumers and policymakers at the local, state and federal levels about water wells and the importance of protecting America’s groundwater resources. Story has been a member of the Water Systems Council’s board of directors for nine years.

In a release, Grundfos says it shares the Water Systems Council’s mission, and proudly takes an active role in being a socially responsible company. The company says it prides itself on making products and solutions that help its customers save natural resources and reduce climate impact.
