The Water Industry Alliance is pleased to announce that Anna Jackson has accepted the role of director of the Alliance in the casual vacancy left by the departure of long-time director Jim McGuire.
Anna is General Manager, Customers, Strategy and Innovation at SA Water. Anna brings to the board over 25 years of experience as a journalist, and marketing and communications specialist within Australia and with International corporate and government sectors. Anna also has extensive experience in business development and stakeholder engagement. These skills are highly desirable and will be invaluable as part of the Alliance board, along with the connection to one of our key Principal Members in SA Water. Anna is also well versed in the governance requirements of boards, being a graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors. The board welcomes Anna to the role and looks forward to working with her into the future.
The role Anna fills was as a result of the casual vacancy left by the departure of Jim McGuire who departed SA Water earlier this year. Jim served the board as a Principal Member nominee across multiple terms and also served as treasurer. His service to the board was impeccable, and his knowledge of governance and connection to government provided the Alliance with tremendous benefit during his term. The board thanks Jim for his dedicated service and wish him well for his future endeavours in life post SA Water.
In accordance with the Alliance constitution, the current board will continue to serve until the next Annual General Meeting.
