LENEXA, Kan. (Feb. 14, 2014) – Smith & Loveless Inc. president Frank J. Rebori has been appointed to the board of directors of the Hydraulic Institute (HI). Rebori was formally introduced at HI’s 97th Annual Meeting, Feb. 6-11, in Litchfield Park, Ariz.

Rebori’s appointment yields an industry distinction as well as a strategic one. He concurrently serves on the executive committee of the board of directors for the Water & Wastewater Equipment Manufacturer’s Association (WWEMA), recently tabbed as chairman-elect in 2014. His dual board participation in both HI and WWEMA is believed to be an industry first, and it promises to foster enhanced dialogue and technical exchange between the two long-time associations.

Rebori was named the sixth president in Smith & Loveless’ 65-plus year history in 2008. Under his leadership, Smith & Loveless Inc. has significantly expanded its wastewater equipment system offerings and global distribution.
