“Two years ago, PRT launched with a mission to deliver innovative technologies and custom-tailored support to relining contractors,” says Richard Lindner, President of Envirosight, PRT’s parent company. “The response was overwhelming, and we’ve seen solid growth in the short time since. Maintaining high service standards amidst such growth, while continuing to lead in technology, takes someone of Pete’s caliber, and we’re lucky to have him.”
Mr. Kurz joins PRT from Tri-State utilities, where he served as business development manager since 2000. During this tenure, he helped grow the company into a successful regional leader in infrastructure rehabilitation, coordinating efforts on a variety of fronts, including sales, advertising, events, networking and public relations. Prior to that, he held senior sales positions with municipal equipment suppliers Virginia Public Works Equipment Company and Atlantic Machinery Company. Mr. Kurz serves on the NASSCO Board of Directors, as well as on various committees within the organization. He is also a committee member with the Virginia Water Environment Association and a local presenter for the Virginia Rural Water Association.
“Having worked closely with PRT from the contractor side, it was clear to me their philosophy of innovation and support is exactly what our industry needs,” says Mr. Kurz. “Simply put, they help relining companies deliver superior results with higher productivity and profit. For me, maintaining that leadership ethos while expanding the business is an exciting challenge, one that starts today.”
