Aquatrols has named Meggie Gilbert as Agricultural Business Manager. Gilbert joins Aquatrols with considerable experience in agricultural sales, marketing and strategic management.

In her new role, she is responsible for charting Aquatrols’ direction of servicing crop growers nationwide and key initiatives to further position its products as “must haves.”

The appointment signals Aquatrols’ continued focus on the agricultural market, specifically in California where water-use efficiency is paramount. Approximately a year ago, the state department of water resources issued an Executive Order and best management practices to bolster climate and drought resistance, as well as use of innovative technologies like Aquatrols for water conservation and energy efficiency.

“Growing up on an almond ranch in California, I saw firsthand the importance of water and other resource preservation,” says Gilbert. “Aquatrols’ technologies are all about optimizing inputs and that’s a goal the entire agriculture industry shares.”

Most recently Water Logic Services Manager at Simplot, Gilbert specialized in identifying growth opportunities and implementing efficiencies in product line management. Previously, she was Northern California District Manager for Syngenta.

“Meggie’s impressive resume speaks to her talent and understanding of this market,” said Aquatrols’ newly appointed President and CEO Matt Foster. “She will play a significant role in Aquatrols furthering its business in the domestic agricultural business as well as identifying future global opportunities.”
