The Welsh government’s environment, energy and rural affairs minister, Lesley Griffiths, has appointed Rhodri Williams as the new Wales chair at the Consumer Council for Water.
Williams (pictured) is an experienced journalist who has worked in a wide range of executive and non-executive roles in the private and public sectors. He is currently a non-executive board member of broadcaster S4C.
Previously, he was Ofcom’s first director in Wales, where he was instrumental in working with government at all levels to help ensure consumers in Wales, particularly in rural areas, received access to fast broadband speeds and mobile telephony services.
Williams said he would ensure that "customers in Wales get more for their money as we enter the final weeks of the 2019 price review."
