Farewell Steve Capewell

August 20, 2020

Water Research Australia would like to extend its thanks and appreciation to Dr Steve Capewell, who will step down as a Board Director at the end of August, following his departure from Water Corporation.

In July, Steve was appointed as the new Managing Director of BIG Team member Goulburn Valley Water.

Steve commenced as a Board Director of WaterRA in October 2017 as Deputy Chair, and also served as Chair of the Human Resources Committee.

"Steve has provided thoughtful input on many issues, skilfully applying his experience and knowledge from within a large state-based utility to the not-for-profit and SME environment in which WaterRA operates," WaterRA CEO Karen Rouse said.  "He has willingly taken on positions of significant responsibility within the Board, including as Chair of the HR Committee, overseeing the successful recruitment of our new Chair.

"On behalf of the staff and Board at WaterRA I would like to congratulate Steve on achieving his personal goal of becoming an MD/CEO. We look forward to his continued valuable input as a member of WaterRA’s BIG Team, and wish him every future success in his new role."
