The Board of Southern Rural Water has announced that Managing Director, Clinton Rodda, has been reappointed for another five years.
Board Chair Terry Burgi said the Board was delighted that Clinton has agreed to continue to lead the rural water corporation until 2019.
“Clinton is held in high regard throughout the water industry and beyond, and we believe his leadership has transformed Southern Rural Water into a modern, customer focused business,” he said.
“Southern Rural Water is facing a number of challenges, including continuing to modernise its irrigation districts, making more water available for production across southern Victoria, and completing a long-running program of dam safety upgrades.
“We believe that Clinton is the ideal person to lead Southern Rural Water during these challenges.”
Mr Rodda said he was excited about the future of Southern Rural Water, and its customers.
“We have been looking hard at the long-term future of our customers, particularly around Asian markets,” he said. “We are keen to add value to their businesses and to regional economies, whilst sensibly protecting the environment and water sources,” he said.
“I believe that a well-managed, flexible rural water supply is going to become critical to Victoria’s economy.
“I’m very pleased to be able to help guide Southern Rural Water’s direction as its Managing Director for the next five years.”
