Victoria’s largest regional urban water corporation, Barwon Water, has appointed a new Managing Director.
Tracey Slatter will replace Joe Adamski – who has been the Managing Director for the last four years.
Victorian Minister for Water, Lisa Neville, said, “We look forward to working with Tracey Slatter in her new role as Managing Director of Barwon Water.
“Her experience and skills will be valuable to the corporation as she plays a lead role in promoting liveability, water service delivery and economic growth in the region.”
Ms Slatter brings management experience to the role having worked for several years at the helm of local councils, as well as executive experience in the Greater Geelong region.
Ms Slatter was most recently the Chief Executive Officer of Port Philip City Council. Her previous roles include CEO of Colac Otway Shire, Head of Claims at the TAC, Director of Primary and Community Health in the Victorian Health Department, and a Director of the G21 Geelong Region Alliance.
Ms Slatter will continue to drive Barwon Water’s efforts to provide quality and cost-effective water and sewerage services, secure the region’s water supplies, strengthen the economy, promote liveability and protect the environment.
Chair of Barwon Water, Jo Plummer, said, “The board and management look forward to working with Tracey as she drives major priorities such as climate change, regional growth, livability, regional leadership, community engagement and diversity in the workplace.
“Joe Adamski leaves a legacy that sets the organisation on a strong business footing and the board wishes him well for the future.”
