New board members appointed

Christopher Badger and Rod Touzel will join the board of Gippsland Water from 1 October 2017.

Malcolm Eccles, Jo Benvenuti, and Margaret Supplitt, whose terms were expiring, have been re-appointed.

Gippsland Water’s Managing Director Sarah Cumming welcomed the appointments.

“Christopher and Rod bring a wealth of technical and leadership experience in the utilities sector. The addition of their skills and knowledge to those of our current and returning board members will be highly beneficial to our organisation, providing strong oversight of the management of our water and wastewater services,” she said.
