Posted: Wednesday, March 8, 2023

Anthony Phou, controller, helps ensure Mesa Water is financially strong.

Q: How did you get into the water field?

A: A friend at the time, who loved her new government job, got me interested and prompted me to apply to Mesa Water. It was probably the best decision that I have ever made.

Q: What would people find the most interesting about your role?

A: I think what is most interesting about my role is the level of detail and analysis that goes into my job every day. We are always analyzing numbers, budgets and invoices, trying to make things more efficient and cost effective for our rate payers.

Q: What is your favorite thing about Mesa Water?

A: My favorite thing is the people that I get to work with, and the vast amount of knowledge and expertise that everyone brings to the table.

Q: When you are not at work, what do you like to do for fun?

A: On my downtime I am usually browsing discount sites trying to find a super good deal.
