Stan Malinky, chief operating officer of Kisters North America, has announced the promotion of hydrologist Matt Ables to the position of Vice President of Operations.
The Citrus Heights-based company is the North American subsidiary of KISTERS AG in Germany, which has been designing and delivering data management software for more than three decades, focusing on water resources management, resource optimization, energy market systems and air quality management.
Ables, who holds a master’s degree in geography from Texas State University, has been with KISTERS since joining as a project manager in 2008. He previously worked as a hydrologist for the lower Colorado River Authority in Austin, Texas.
In his new role, he’ll continue to do system design, sales and project oversight for the company, but will be much more involved in budgeting and administration.
