BlueInGreen Adds Two Sales Managers to Lead Expansion

Water treatment technology company hires Industrial Sales Manager Mike Dunigan and Regional Sales Manager Gary Jeral to accommodate continued growth

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (March 14, 2017) - BlueInGreen®, provider of the world's most efficient method of delivering dissolved oxygen, carbon dioxide and ozone into water, has announced the addition of two new team members to its growing sales force. The water treatment technology company has hired Mike Dunigan as Industrial Sales Manager and Gary Jeral as Regional Sales Manager, each working to foster client relationships and expand BlueInGreen's overall presence in the water treatment marketplace.

Dunigan will further develop BlueInGreen’s customer service and sales strategies within the private sector, while Jeral will work to target potential product applications and promote high-level sales efforts across northeastern U.S. and Canada in order to further expand BlueInGreen’s international growth. The arrival of Dunigan and Jeral marks yet another major milestone for BlueInGreen, which has already seen a record-number of orders and installations in recent months.

"We are fortunate to be able to bring aboard such high-level talent as Gary and Mike, and it clearly demonstrates BlueInGreen’s commitment to growth and expansion in all market sectors,” said National Sales Manager Thomas Sichz, PE.  “Their combined experience and expertise will help us capitalize on BlueInGreen’s growing momentum in the municipal, industrial and ecological markets.”

Dunigan has over 20 years of water and wastewater treatment experience, including biological, separation, disinfection and tertiary filtration processes. Dunigan received his bachelor’s degree in business from Louisiana State University and worked in various sales roles at Danaher, Hach, Schreiber and Xylem. Before joining BlueInGreen, he served as Senior Business Development Manager for PeroxyChem, where he led a rep network to surpass both regional and national sales goals.

“I’m so proud to work alongside such a talented group of people at BlueInGreen,” said Dunigan. “At every level, from design to sales, BlueInGreen is constantly innovating. It’s no coincidence companies and municipalities across the country are actively seeking our solutions.”

In addition to Dunigan’s expert skill set, Jeral has over 40 years of extensive experience across numerous industrial and municipal treatment processes, including water and wastewater, food and beverage and pulp and paper applications. Beginning as a District Sales Manager for Merck and Company in 1976, Jeral’s proven sales record later led him to management roles at Dynatec Systems, Halliburton Industries, Curtiss-Wright Flow Control, Integra, TES Technologies and Siemens. In recent years, Jeral worked as a Regional Sales Manager for Enaqua, where he successfully assembled a national rep network while working with engineering firms, private contractors and plant operators across the country.

“This is a very special time to be part of BlueInGreen,” said Jeral. “By pairing a state-of-the-art technology with an award-winning support system, BlueInGreen is poised to make an immense and immediate impact on the water treatment market.”

Founded in 2004, BlueInGreen’s solutions for aeration, pH adjustment, oxidation and odor control have been celebrated by end users and industry leaders alike, winning the Water Environment Federation's (WEF) Innovative Technology Award in 2010, as well as the Global Cleantech Cluster Association's (GCCA) Grand Prize in 2015. With over 100 years of combined water treatment experience, BlueInGreen's elite team of designers, engineers and technicians continues to refine its groundbreaking dissolution systems to better meet the needs of its customers, while simultaneously lowering treatment costs and improving water quality.

In October 2016, BlueInGreen launched its latest series of solutions, StreamLine, designed to offer high efficiency rates at a lower upfront cost. StreamLine has already set initial sales records, with two StreamLineCO2 systems installed in Mission Viejo, Calif. and Gallatin, Mo. in early 2017. Including its four flagship solutions - the SDOX®, CDOX®, HyDOZ® and SDOX-CS® - BlueInGreen has over 30 units operating or currently underway in the U.S. and Canada, with more installations scheduled in the coming months.

“Mike and Gary each bring decades of in-depth experience to BlueInGreen’s veteran sales team,” said CEO and President Chris Milligan, PE. “Their valuable insight will help us deliver the world’s most efficient water treatment technology to a diverse range of customers in a wide variety of industries. With their help, BIG will only get bigger.”
