Mr. Peter Dencher, a top executive in the European Water Technology Market, has taken on the leadership role as Managing Director for Aquatech B.V. Mr. Dencher has extensive experience in the water industry, having successfully run Christ Holland for nearly 20 years, and subsequently Biothane Netherlands.
