“I’m pleased to take up the role of acting CE for Wellington Water and would like to thank Colin and the Senior Leadership Team for their support,” says Tonia.
“My focus as acting CE is to provide our organisation with consistency and stability, and to support the Board as they work through the process to find a fixed-term CE for Wellington Water.”
The Board will also be undertaking a recruitment process over the coming weeks to appoint a fixed-term CE for Wellington Water.
“I want to thank Colin for his leadership and work over the last eight years at Wellington Water. Colin has demonstrated his outstanding leadership skills as he led this company from its inception to what it is today, a mature and valued operation delivering services in a complex environment. The Board is proud of what he’s achieved for the region and wish him every success at Entity C,” says Lynda.
