During many years of committed service to the business outgoing iNED, Margaret Fay, has championed the voice of customers at board level, attending the Water Forum challenge group and many customer engagement events. The company is also grateful to Simon Lyster, who leaves a legacy as a strong advocate on environmental issues, sharing his expertise on biodiversity and climate change mitigation.
The incoming iNEDs, who were formally appointed to the Board in April 2021, also bring vast knowledge from leading positions both within the utilities industry and from other sectors.
Andy Hunter, Chairman of Northumbrian Water Ltd, said:
“Independent Non-Executive Directors play a very important role on our Board, calling on their vast experience in a wide range of relevant fields to help and constructively challenge management and their fellow Directors to run the business efficiently while delivering the best service possible for our customers.
“Margaret and Simon have given great service to Northumbrian Water and its people and customers, and I would like to express my personal gratitude to them, as well as that of the whole Board, for helping shape so much of what we do now and our plans for the coming years.
“We look forward to working with Richard, Alan and Bridget and we are certain that we will benefit greatly from their input as we drive our business forward through challenging, yet exciting times.”
