Highly respected Chair of SA Water’s Board, Andrew Fletcher AO, has tendered his resignation from the utility after being appointed in August 2018.

Mr Fletcher confirmed his decision to step down in a letter to SA Water staff and his fellow board members on Friday 17 June. He is expected to finish up in the role on 30 June.

An engineer by trade, Mr Fletcher, brought more than 45 years of experience in senior management within the engineering, construction, infrastructure and defence industries to his role as Chair.

His extensive experience in corporate governance within the private and public sectors has been an asset to SA Water.

The Malinauskas Government wishes Mr Fletcher well with his future plans and thanks him for his service to SA Water and to South Australia as a whole.

The Government will now begin the process of recruiting and appointing a new Chair.

I want to sincerely thanks Andrew not only for his stewardship of SA Water, but for his lifelong contribution to public service and private enterprise in this state.

I wish him all the best going forward in whatever activities he decides to pursue.
