Sandra Neal is the new director of marketing and business development at Alliance Water Resources. She is formerly the director of human resources for the company.

“Serving as the human resources director has been incredibly rewarding,” says Neal. “Alliance employees are an amazing group of folks.”

Neal will concentrate her business development efforts on sharing information and building relationships with representatives of water and wastewater systems in Missouri and Iowa.

“So many system officials are unaware of the benefits of contract operations,” she explained, “my mission will be to get the word out that Alliance Water Resources can be the answer for district and municipal officials looking for a cost-effective way to improve responses to management issues and regulatory mandates.”

In her eight years with the company, Neal has implemented various human resource services for Alliance Water Resources. Initiatives include implementing a supervisor and technical training program, developing a talent management and retention strategy, and enhancing safety programs with audits and incentives. Under Neal\'s leadership, Alliance was the winner of the Human Resources Management Association’s prestigious Paragon Award for 2001.

Headquartered in Columbia, Mo., Alliance Water Resources is a leading provider of professional operations and maintenance services for community water and wastewater systems in the Midwest. The company prides itself in its unique understanding of the needs of communities in Missouri and Iowa.
