Second-year student Sean Street has joined Phigenics, an independent water company that optimizes operational efficiency and improves safety in building water systems.
Phigenics specializes in helping facility managers focus on preventing disease and injury caused by hazards in building water and improving financial performance related to water use. Founded in 2004, Phigenics provides independent water management program guidance to leaders in facility management, infection prevention, sustainability and environmental, and health and safety.
As an account manager, Street will support the sales team in its collaboration with clients to build and manage water management programs. He was connected with Phigenics through Clinton School graduate Kellen Utecht ('13).
“Kellen was a strong influence on my decision to enroll in the Clinton School” Street said. “As I had hoped, my experiences at the school have given me a strong foundation for the start of my career.”
Street noted that his International Public Service Project with MassChallenge Israel helped prepare him for his new role with Phigenics.
“I was empowered to explore the process of starting and growing many different types of businesses in different markets around the world – an ideal perspective and set of skills to carry into this sales position at Phigenics,” Street said.
Street, a native of Hot Springs, Ark., is a graduate of the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville with a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering and a master’s degree in business administration. Before enrolling at the Clinton School, he held internships with LyondellBasell Industries in Houston and Chicago and Wishfin in Delhi, India.
The Clinton School Speaker Series not only enhances the education of Clinton School students, but also provides a venue for the public to engage in intellectual discussions on the issues of the day.
