Wannon Water appoints new Managing Director

22 May 2015

The Board of Wannon Water is very pleased to announce the appointment of Andrew Jeffers as the new Managing Director of Wannon Water.

Andrew is currently the General Manager Strategy & Innovation at Wannon Water and will commence his new role on 20 July 2015.

Wannon Water Chairman John Vogels said the Board was delighted to appoint Andrew to the position after an extensive and rigorous recruitment process that attracted many high-calibre applicants.

“Andrew has more than 20 years’ experience in the water industry, including 15 years in senior management roles at Wannon Water,” Mr Vogels said.

“He has previously had responsibility for Retail & Corporate Services, Service Delivery and Strategy & Innovation.

“The Board was unanimous in its decision to appoint Andrew and we look forward to working with him as we tackle the various challenges and opportunities in the years to come.”

Andrew will succeed Grant Green in the Managing Director’s position, with Grant advising the Board earlier this year that he would resign from Wannon Water after 10 years as Managing Director.

“Under Grant’s leadership Wannon Water has a proud record of achievement in providing secure, reliable water and sewerage services to customers across its service area and servicing regional growth,” Mr Vogels said.

“On behalf of the Board, I take this opportunity to acknowledge Grant’s outstanding contribution to Wannon Water and the Victorian water industry and wish him and his family the very best in the years to come.”
