F&V Operations and Resource Management, Inc. (FVOP) of Grand Rapids announced today the hiring of five new employees, including a regional manager for southeast Michigan.
Blair Selover, FVOP group manager, said the additions were primarily needed to keep up with a growing client demand for operations in southeastern Michigan and northern Indiana.
“We’ve added some younger operators with growth potential and some operators with many years of experience,” Selover said. “Getting a full-time regional manager for southeast Michigan was pivotal.
“It’s an area where we’re growing fast and we’re still looking for more good people.”
Steve Wyzgoski joins FVOP as the regional manager in southeast Michigan. He has over 30 years of experience in industrial pretreatment programs, wastewater treatment plant supervision and wastewater treatment lab management including four years as a senior project manager.
Wyzgoski has 16 years of experience as a lab manager at a regional utility authority serving water and wastewater customers in Washtenaw and Wayne counties. He is also a Class A Municipal Wastewater Operator, Industrial Stormwater Operator and Environmental Lab Analyst Grade 4.
Three staff were added in northern Indiana. They are Mike Plasterer, Ahmad Walters and Darold Harlan.
Plasterer, a water plant specialist, joins FVOP as a project manager. He has nearly 20 years of experience in operations in Indiana and Arizona. Plasterer has a Bachelor of Science degree in Occupational Education and Business Management from Wayland Baptist University.
