The water treatment company BlueInGreen in Fayetteville has added three new staff members.

Richard Quinn is regional sales manager, Theresa Case is finance and administrative manager and Jackson Shirey is project engineer, according to a press release.

“Richard, Theresa and Jackson each possess a proven track record in their fields, and we’re happy to have them on board,” BlueInGreen CEO and President Chris Milligan said in the release. “These new hires better position BlueInGreen to capitalize on our growing momentum within the public and private sectors and, most importantly, provide industry-leading solutions and service to our end users.”

Quinn has 35 years of experience in the water treatment market, including owning his own consulting firm in Michigan and handling regional and national sales for Fairfield Service Company, SSI Aeration, Siemens and Chicago Bridge & Iron.

His role at BlueInGreen will be to work to identify strategic sales opportunities in the municipal and industrial sectors across the eastern U.S. and Canada, according to the company.

He has a bachelor’s degree in civil and environmental engineering from the University of Michigan and serves on the Michigan Water Environment Association’s Biosolids Committee, according to the press release.

“Richard is a true industry veteran,” national sales manager Thomas Sichz said in the release. “He’s known for bringing unmatched expertise and integrity to every project, which naturally makes him a perfect fit for our sales team.”

Case will oversee high-level accounting and administrative duties in order to facilitate company growth, according to the press release.

She has 10 years of experience in tax accounting, financial consulting and corporate invoicing. Prior to joining BlueInGreen, Case was accounts payable manager at the e-commerce company Acumen Holdings in Fayetteville.

Before that, she  worked as an invoicing associate at Cheyenne Products, a manufacturer of responsibly-sourced home décor and furnishings.

Project engineer Shirey studied steam generation as an engineering intern at Paul Mueller Company, a global supplier of heating, cooling and storage solutions, and gained firsthand experience with process line equipment as a manufacturing intern at Molex, a leading global supplier of advanced electronic components and technologies, according to the BlueInGreen release.

Before joining the company as a full-time employee, Shirey worked as a mechanical engineer intern for BlueInGreen, where he focused on optimizing HyDOZ system performance within specified system parameters.

A member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, he received his bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Arkansas.

“We’re happy to have Jackson back at BlueInGreen,” director of engineering and product manager Darryl Fendley said in the release. “His talent and intelligence were apparent throughout his internship. There’s really no ceiling to what he can accomplish as a full-time employee on our design team.”
