Consultancy, Isle Utilities has appointed Matthew Stephenson as European director.

Stephenson joined Isle from Suez where he has held a number of directorships since 2012. He has more than 20 years’ experience in the water sector including 10 years with Bristol Water at Bristol Water, until 2010.

Stephenson said his combination of water company and supplier side experience enables him to “understand the challenges such different organisations have in working together.”

He will initially be “exploring new areas of opportunity, especially with industrial water users.” And Isle’s expansion beyond the water sector into energy and transport, he said, will enable it to “harness cross-sector collaboration and co-ordination of innovation activities.”
