Speaking on behalf of the board, Co-Founder and Chief Water Giver, Cody Barker said, "There isn't anyone else I would have chosen as CEO. Ken has so many talents and is perfectly suited to take People Water to the next level. I have never met anyone who has so much passion and drive for what they do, and there are very few people who exemplify his level of integrity and honesty. I'm very excited for the future of People Water, as well as the opportunity to work with Ken."

People Water is about much more than just making money; it's also about making a difference. Its Drop for Drop Initiative, 'For every bottle purchased People Water will give an equal amount of clean water to a person in need,' has great potential to make the world a better place. I believe that with my business experience we can build a profitable and sustainable company, and increase our ability to help a greater number of people for years to come."
