Water Industry Expert Mark Bertler Join Wishing Well International FoundationDeerfield Beach, FL – January 15, 2015 – Wishing Well International Foundation (WWIF) announces that Mark G. Bertler has joined the WWIF team as a member of the Board of Directors and VP of Marketing.  He has over 25 years of experience in the water, wastewater and environmental industries including senior executive positions with numerous Fortune 500 companies such as Pentair, Sta-Rite Industries and US Filter.

Bertler has expertise in mergers, acquisitions, business development, operations management, business analytics, strategic planning, sales and marketing management both domestically and internationally. He is the managing partner at Watermark Solutions, a business development and financial transaction advisory firm. He’s also the VP of Sales and Marketing for HydroNovation, an emerging technology start-up. His role with the Foundation will be to direct corporate relations and fundraising.

“I have been following the Foundation for some time,” said Bertler. “Upon learning that the Water Quality Association had endorsed the Foundation last year, I was encouraged to start discussions with the team members.  I was looking for a team that would allow me to use my expertise and contacts within the industry so I can finally give back. The water quality industry has been good to me and I can’t think of a better way to give back than to be involved in philanthropy and to work with a bunch of guys with such noble aspirations. I’m pleased to join the team and together we will do great things for those who desperately need it.”

“We are pleased to have Mark working with us,” said Wishing Well Founder Guillermo Guzman. “His passion to help others and give back is perfectly aligned with our vision. With Mark’s help, we will step up our efforts to bring the entire industry together as well as expand our relations with non-industry companies. I look forward to working with him.”

Wishing Well International Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization bringing clean, safe drinking water to developing areas. WWIF also focuses on sanitation and hygiene to enhance the quality of life while reducing disease and mortality. 100 percent of public donations are used to fund WWIF projects worldwide.
