PeopleService was founded in Omaha, Nebraska. This is our home port from which we serve all the communities that partner with us. We invite you to contact any of our corporate staff for anything you need.
In his role as president of PeopleService, Chad is laser-focused on every aspect of the business, fostering its continued growth and working directly with seven region managers to insure that the company is operating in total alignment. His job is to communicate the company’s vision, and make certain that every contract PeopleService handles has the correct resources, knowledge and tools available to meet the demands of the contract and exceed expectation.
“The key to PeopleService is our people. Our people are our greatest asset, they are the public face of PeopleService. We have brought together a group of talented and committed professionals who are invested in their work and diligent about serving the communities they live and work in. Integrity is key. The communities that employ our services trust us to give them the full benefit of our expertise. We are always learning and advancing our knowledge about every aspect of the water/wastewater business.
One of the most rewarding aspects of this job is presenting service awards to our employees. We have so many long-term employees that go that extra mile for our customers. They believe in what we do and give so much of themselves. It is truly an honor for me to recognize all that they do to make PeopleService so successful.”
Director of Sales
Navy veteran Chris McMillen is the newest member of the PeopleService team and brings a wealth of strong strategic sales and management experience from across the nation, most recently in Tampa, Florida.
“Alan and Chad Meyer’s integrity and passion instantly attracted me to PeopleService where I know I can make a positive impact. I love that the organization is just like a family. There is a wealth of knowledge here, and everyone collaborates and shares thoughts and ideas.
Communities across the country are losing qualified water/wastewater operators and PeopleService’s expertise and talented workforce is an instrumental solution to this problem.
My role is to sit down with city administrators and leaders to discuss what’s keeping them awake at night and how PeopleService can help.”
When you meet with Chris, ask him about his days in comedy improv. When he isn’t cracking a joke or talking water/wastewater solutions, you can find him fishing, golfing, at the BBQ grill and working on his home brew.

Mike Adair lives by a 365/24/7 philosophy… He sees his role as the director of operational programs as a man who wears many hats and he takes all of his responsibilities very seriously.
In his role as safety director, first and foremost, he arms everyone who represents PeopleService with the best practices and methods to make certain that all systems run optimally.
Mike is also charged with ethical compliance and he expects everyone at PeopleService to commit to the highest standards of ethics at all times… because the water that they are responsible for flows into people’s homes… And people are what really matter.
Another hat that Mike wears is that of technical support… people depend on him to know the answers and to find the answers… to make certain the systems he manages are all running at peak efficiency. It’s part of that 365/24/7 work ethic that has proven so valuable to Mike throughout his career.
Dennis White is a 40-year veteran of the water and wastewater industry and spearheads the PeopleService drive to recruit into the sector by working with High Schools, Community Colleges and Rural Water Districts throughout the Midwest.
“I spent over 40 years in the water and wastewater business and couldn’t have had a more varied and rewarding career,” said Dennis. “Being able to serve the communities where I worked on such a vital resource is something I’m really proud to have achieved. Now my role is to engage the next generation in this career choice. A little education goes a long way and I’m great at spreading the word. So far it’s working,” he added.
Dennis started his career as a plumber – he holds a Master Plumber’s license – before heading up the wastewater department for the City of Clarinda in Iowa from 1979 to 1993. He then joined PeopleService where he was Region Manager up to 2019.
“It’s not in my nature to retire, so when PeopleService President Chad Meyer asked me to be the first Ambassador in the sector, I was honored to take up the role. There is nothing I like more than to give back something to an industry that gave me such a rewarding and truly satisfying lifetime career. Now I get to help students set out on that journey.”
