Ofwat unveils new Senior Leadership Team

Posted: Thursday 28th April 2016

Ofwat has unveiled three new appointments to its Senior Leadership Team within the executive.

The regulator has appointed Aileen Armstrong, who joins from HM Treasury, to become Senior Director, Finance and Governance; David Black, currently Ofwat's Director of Economics, takes the new position of Senior Director, Water 2020; and John Russell, who joins from Shell, will become Senior Director, Strategy and Planning. David takes up post immediately and Aileen and John will take up their posts in the summer.

Keith Mason, previously Senior Director, Finance and Networks, has taken a new position of Senior Director, Thames Tideway.

In this role, he will ensure that the innovative arrangements put in place to support the delivery of the Thames Tideway Tunnel will deliver value for customers. He will also lead a new stream of work to translate Ofwat's experience from the Thames Tideway programme to other projects, working with the National Infrastructure Commission and other regulators.

Announcing the new Senior Leadership Team within the executive, Cathryn Ross, Ofwat Chief Executive, said: "Ofwat has an ambitious vision for the future. We are working to build trust and confidence in water and to make sure customers' interests are front and centre in the sector's thinking. We have set a new strategy to help us achieve our goal, but that is just the start.

"Aileen, David and John have impressive credentials and they will strengthen our executive's strategic leadership. Crucially, they share our culture and values, and have a clear appetite to drive us forward. I am looking forward to them joining our existing team.

"With these new appointments, we have the leadership team, the budget and the policy proposals in place to drive forward over the coming years."
