Urban Utilities has announced its CEO will be resigning in August 2022, following ten successful years transforming the company into one of the world’s leading water authorities.

Louise Dudley is set to conclude her decade long tenure. Urban Utilities Chair, Bronwyn Morris, said Ms Dudley was recognised as an exemplary leader in the water industry, serving on several Australian and international peak bodies. 

“Next year will mark a decade as CEO for Louise and I’d like to acknowledge the outstanding contribution she has made in the transformation of Urban Utilities into an innovative, customer-focused organisation,” Ms Morris said. 

“We’re pleased Louise will continue as CEO for another 12 months to oversee the delivery of a number of strategic projects and priorities and ensure a seamless transition to her successor.

“We remain excited for the future and look forward to building on our organisation’s strong foundations and continuing to deliver for our customers and community.” 

Ms Dudley was instrumental in the formation of Urban Utilities in 2010 which involved the merger of five local council water businesses to establish one of Australia’s largest water utilities. 

“I’m extremely proud of the team that we have at Urban Utilities. Together, we have created a high performing culture with a strong focus on customer service, enhancing our community and environment, and improving the wellbeing and safety of our employees,” Ms Dudley said.

“We have also built a reputation for innovation. We’ve been recognised twice nationally in the most innovative company list, and we’re an invited member of the Leading Utilities of the World, with a world leading innovation precinct at Luggage Point.” 

After leaving Urban Utilities, Ms Dudley is looking forward to new professional opportunities including taking on Board and advisory roles. 

She is passionate about the water industry and will continue to serve as President of the Australian Water Association and as a Director of WaterAid and WaterStart Nevada. 

The process to select Urban Utilities next CEO will commence within October 2021.
