Joel Hagan, CEO of i2O, comments:  “Smart water networks have to deliver the very highest levels of security as well as dramatic improvements in environmental, financial and service performance. Daniel’s appointment will help ensure that i2O continues to look at security as a holistic issue and that our clients retain confidence in these vital technologies.”
