After leading the organisation for seven years, Managing Director of Coliban Water, Jeff Rigby, has announced his resignation to take up the role of Managing Director of Western Water, based in Sunbury.
The Board of Coliban Water will shortly confirm the appointment of an acting Managing Director and make preparations for commencing a recruitment process for the vacant Managing Director role following Mr Rigby’s departure.
Mr Rigby has worked in the Victorian water industry for over 30 years. He came to Coliban Water in late 2011, after completing a five-year term as Managing Director of the Horsham-based Grampians Wimmera Mallee Water.
Coliban Water Chairperson, Lucy Roffey, said, “Jeff commenced with Coliban Water at a time when the corporation was contending with significant financial challenges following the Millennium Drought.
“Through prudent management of the corporation’s finances under a long-range strategy, the organisation is now in a much stronger financial position and is a financially sustainable enterprise.
“Early on in his time with Coliban Water, he restructured business operations and the changes made are delivering cost-effective services and better outcomes for our customers, communities and the environment across our region.”
