CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Raftelis Financial Consultants, Inc. (RFC) has hired Keith Readling, PE, to serve as Director of Stormwater Management Consulting for the firm.

Keith has 26 years of experience providing engineering, regulatory compliance, program development, and related services for governmental agencies. He is one of the foremost authorities in the country regarding stormwater management programs, data, systems, and business processes. He has assisted with the establishment of 36 stormwater utilities in 13 states, serving as the lead for 17 of them.

Keith brings this experience to head RFC’s stormwater management consulting practice. RFC has performed stormwater financial and rate design services in the past but Keith will provide the capability to vastly expand RFC’s service offerings in this area.

“Expanding our stormwater capabilities is a key strategic initiative for our firm and a logical extension of RFC’s current service offerings of providing financial, rate, and management consulting to water and wastewater utilities,” said Bill Stannard, President of RFC. “We are particularly excited to be able to add Keith to our team. With his knowledge and experience, we believe that Keith is the perfect fit to lead our expansion of this practice area.”
