Thames Water’s chief operating officer quits
Thames Water’s chief operating officer (COO) Lawrence Gosden has resigned – the latest in a series of departures from the company’s senior executive team.
Gosden (pictured) became COO in April 2018, having previously been managing director of wastewater. He first joined Thames Water in October 2007, to lead the delivery of the company’s capital programme, and was instrumental in the creation of the Eight2O Alliance.
Other recent departures from the Thames executive team included strategy and regulation director, Nick Fincham, and strategic planning and investment director, Sarah McMath
Like Fincham, Gosden is likely to remain at Thames for some time yet. The company said it would begin recruitment for a successor.
