Paul Arnold standing against a brick wall Urban Utilities

Urban Utilities’ new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) has commenced in the role after former CEO, Louise Dudley, resigned from the position to explore new opportunities.

With more than 30 years in the natural resources industry, new CEO Paul Arnold brings a breadth of experience to help shape the future of water and wastewater in South East Queensland.

Having called South East Queensland home for many years, Mr Arnold said water was at the heart of the region’s much-loved lifestyle.

“Water is central to our way of life and how our cities, towns and regions grow and develop. Our quality of life – our jobs, businesses and our communities – depend on it,” he said.

“I’m honoured to be joining this industry-leading organisation at a time when there are so many exciting opportunities to shape the future of water for our customers and communities.

“For Urban Utilities, the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games in particular presents a once-in-a-generation opportunity to introduce innovative water and wastewater solutions to the region, as part of the significant urban renewal that will come.

“By making the most of these opportunities, we can achieve a more resilient, sustainable and cost-effective water cycle to support our growing communities and local economy.”

Mr Arnold said he was proud to be part of a business that was so connected to its people, community and the local environment.

“As an essential service provider, we play an important role in supporting healthy, sustainable and liveable communities, and I’m excited to work with the passionate people in this organisation as we continue to deliver on our purpose of enriching quality of life,” he said.

“I look forward to building on the great work that’s already been done to deliver value for our customers and community.”
