CEO, Kristin Elliott was recently awarded with an annual “Women Who Mean Business” award by the Sand Diego Business Journal. About Kristin, the Journal writes,

Being a woman and running a technology development company has its challenges; but Kristin Elliott doesn’t let that stop her as she pursues every opportunity with commitment and passion. Elliott spends most of her time striving for balance, working toward growing and developing Precision Measurement Engineering to provide scientific instrumentation to enhance global water quality through data monitoring and collection. She has taken this family business to more than $1 million in revenue with an expected growth of 75 percent from last year, creating an international distribution network. She has created solid business partnerships to produce unique products. Her most recent partnership is with a company in Israel, Ayyeka, which produces real-time monitoring systems. Elliott is pursuing a new business model to enhance water quality monitoring in aquaculture as the demand for farmed fish rises as natural fisheries are depleted. She has worked closely with Scripps Institution of Oceanography on new environmental projects and worked with Hubbs-Sea World Research Institute to provide water quality instrumentation that will allow them to better understand conditions. Elliott works toward not only improving the global community, but also the local community and is involved with various business organizations such as the San Diego Entrepreneur’s Organization while raising her two young children, Makenzie (4) and Colton (2). She obtained her Masters of Business Administration locally from Cal State San Marcos and was recently named one of the top alumni to graduate. Elliott has been asked to participate in the “Meet the Leaders” program on campus to share her leadership story.
