Ofwat seeks more senior directors as two step down

Ofwat is to recruit two more senior directors after confirming senior leadership moves.

Senior director for strategy, finance and infrastructure, John Russell will leave Ofwat in the summer to take up a new role as a chief executive outside the water sector. Meanwhile senior director for markets, enforcement and customer policy, Emma Kelso, will remain in Ofwat but is stepping back from her role so she can study for a doctorate.

Ofwat said adverts will be going live shortly for both positions. It updated that recruitment for a senior director for the price review, following the announcement of Aileen Armstrong’s departure, is well underway with plenty of interest.

Meanwhile RAPID managing director, Paul Hickey, will join the Ofwat senior leadership team on a permanent basis, having been on secondment from the Environment Agency.
