Barwon Water has announced the resignation of its Managing Director, Tracy Slatter, who has been in the role since January 2017. 

During her time as Managing Director, Ms Slatter led the organisation through transformational change. 

Ms Slatter will conclude her duties at Barwon Water on 15 June 2023.

Barwon Water Chair, Jo Plummer, has thanked the outgoing Managing Director and commended her for her considerable achievements in the role.

“Under Tracey’s leadership, Barwon Water has made huge strides, recognising its key role in driving regional prosperity and addressing the considerable challenges of climate change, population growth and more,” Ms Plummer said.

“Tracey has led the creation of Barwon Water’s Strategy2030, co-designed through extensive listening and collaborating with customers, key stakeholders and the region’s community.”

Ms Slatter’s focus on safety has been reflected in the organisation’s culture and results and her commitment to customers, community and the environment has accelerated the organisation’s race to net zero. 

Innovative partnerships like the Regional Renewable Organics Network that reduce waste, create valuable resources, provide employment, and keep customer prices low are part of Ms Slatter’s Barwon Water legacy.

Ms Plummer also commended Ms Slatter for her investment in the capability and wellbeing of all employees.

“Under Tracey’s leadership, we have experienced a substantial positive shift in the culture of the organisation. Our people are empowered to lead, innovate, partner and find ways to solve problems facing our region. Tracey has also been a champion for diversity and inclusion and led by example in creating an organisation where everybody is welcome, safe, and valued,” Ms Plummer said.

“Tracey has respectfully built relationships with Traditional Owners and other First Nations people, demonstrating her commitment to reconciliation and self-determination. Through doing so, she has embedded this as a core value at Barwon Water, and one which we will proudly continue.”

Ms Plummer noted that a recruitment process to replace Ms Slatter would commence shortly and that an interim Managing Director would be determined prior to Ms Slatter’s departure.

On behalf of the Board and employees, Ms Plummer wished Ms Slatter every success in her future endeavours.

“We all know that Tracey will lead the TAC with impact, and we look forward to observing her future career as she delivers positive results for road traffic accident victims and their families,”  Ms Plummer said.
