Experienced utilities, energy, resources and financial services chief executive and company director, Greg Martin, has been appointed as the independent Chair of Hunter Water.
Minister for Water, Property and Housing Melinda Pavey said an independent board plays a significant role in the governance and accountability of NSW's State Owned Corporations.
“I welcome the appointment of Mr Martin to this important role as Chair of Hunter Water,” Mrs Pavey said.
"As the incoming Chair, Mr Martin is tasked with providing governance oversight of the State Owned Corporation, leading the Board of Directors to set Hunter Water's strategy and direction, and ensuring the organisation meets its performance obligations and commitments to its customers and communities.”
Newly appointed Chair Greg Martin said he was excited to take on the role.
“I’m also focused on improving water efficiency, both in Hunter Water’s network and within the Lower Hunter community, and building on its existing best practice corporate governance culture.”
Mr Martin's appointment follows the conclusion of Terry Lawler AO's nine-year term as Hunter Water Chairperson in December 2020.
Our Board of Directors oversees our organisation’s policies, management and performance. The Board sets our strategic direction, and ensures we achieve our business and regulatory commitments.
