The utility’s board has extended the contract of its Managing Director, Damian Wells, for an additional five years. 

Coliban Water Chairperson, Bob Cameron, thanked Mr Wells for his exceptional leadership since joining the organisation in 2019. 

“Mr Wells’ passion, vision and commitment to his team and the community made the decision to reappoint an easy one,” Mr Cameron said. 

“We have a clear purpose at Coliban Water. To provide water and sewage services for public health and the environment. We know the continuity of direction that Damian brings ensures this important purpose will be delivered.” 

Mr Wells said that it was an honour to continue as Managing Director.

“Using Our Strategy as our true north, we will continue to drive change and build trust in the communities that we serve,” Mr Wells said. 

“Over the next five years we’re putting our customers’ money to work with a package of critical projects addressing a growing population, a changing climate and ageing infrastructure. We need to build safe, reliable and resilient assets to meet the needs of our community, now and into the future. 

“I love living and working in this region – and being able to contribute to the prosperity and growth of this community is of great importance to me.” 

Mr Wells was appointed Managing Director of Coliban Water in 2019 after a career that included work in technical and leadership roles in water, environment and regulation. He is Chair of Zero Emissions Water (ZEW) and the Bendigo Advisory Board for La Trobe University.
