Simkiss & Block is excited to share the first Executive Session video featuring our CEO Brian Block. In this video, Brian sits down with CEO of Aqua America, Christopher Franklin, for a conversation about Aqua’s growth and culture, as well as Chris’ views on business leadership today.
Aqua America has recently experienced an exciting period of growth, having entered a non-traditional market with the acquisition of a gas utility. About that acquisition, Franklin remarked, “the board and management team had a vision in place to pull off a transaction like this.” He goes on to discuss how having the proper advisors and partners in place helps ease transitions into new areas.
Watch the video below to hear more about Chris’ vision for Aqua America, his view on leadership and progress, as well as how he navigates the challenges that come with being a CEO.
