Wil Pergande Elected Non-Executive Chairman Of The Board At Consolidated Water Co. Ltd.

GEORGE TOWN, Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands, Nov. 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Consolidated Water Co. Ltd. (Nasdaq: CWCO) today announced that Mr. Wil Pergande has been elected non-executive Chairman of the Company's Board of Directors.

Mr. Pergande is President of WF Pergande Consulting LLC, a Florida-based engineering consulting firm that specializes in seawater and brackish water conversion, fluid dynamics, chemical process and separation technologies.  He has over 40 years of experience in the seawater conversion business and is well-recognized in the industry for his technical skills and management experience.  Mr. Pergande has been a member of Consolidated Water's Board of Directors since 1978.

"We are very pleased that Wil Pergande has agreed to serve as our non-executive Chairman of the Board," stated Rick McTaggart, Chief Executive Officer and Director of Consolidated Water Co. Ltd.  "Wil's contributions to the success of our Company as a member of the Board of Directors have proven invaluable over the past 31 years.  He is our longest-serving Director and is widely respected for his extensive experience in the seawater conversion industry.  We believe reverse osmosis technology will be increasingly utilized in the future as the world confronts dwindling supplies of naturally-sourced water in a growing number of countries.  Our Board of Directors is confident in Wil's ability to very effectively represent our Company within the business and investment communities in coming years."    

From 2003 to 2006, Mr. Pergande served as Global Desalination and Process Equipment Leader for the GE Water and Process Technology Infrastructure division of General Electric Company, where he was responsible for seawater reverse osmosis sales and marketing strategies in the Americas, Euro/ Africa and Southeast Asia regions.  He also provided equipment engineering, design and project risk analysis for global seawater projects.  Mr. Pergande joined GE when that company acquired Osmonics, Inc. in February 2003.  He joined Osmonics, Inc., a NYSE-listed company, in 1995 and was promoted to Vice President of New Business Development in 2000.
