Donald Toon announced on September 25 that William (Bill) MacDonald is the new president and CEO of Heron Instruments Inc., which designs and manufactures water monitoring equipment in Ontario, Canada, and sells the product around the world with more than 30 distribution partners. Toon will maintain a role at Heron as a consultant to both the design/innovation team and MacDonald.
MacDonald is a proven leader with engineering skills, business vision, and the ability to bring people together. The company states MacDonald’s understanding of how technology will be used and experienced globally is what Heron Instruments needs as the company enters into a new chapter of expanded product innovation and growth.
“We believe Heron has a bright future ahead, and the innovation potential of our current and new projects reflect that strong confidence,” MacDonald says. “While most of our attention will be focused on providing high-quality product solutions to support our customers, we know that the groundwater industry is rapidly changing and we need to be on top of this transformation as well.”
