NAWC announces departure of executive director

The National Association of Water Companies (NAWC) recently announced that its executive director, Michael Deane, will leave the association on or about the 1st of February, 2018. Deane has led the trade organisation for private regulated utilities and operating companies since June 2009. 

“Michael’s leadership over the past eight years has strengthened the association and established NAWC as a trusted and well-respected organisation in our work with state regulators, federal and Congressional officials, as well as our colleagues in the water sector to bring efficient, sustainable solutions to the nation’s water infrastructure investment and management challenges,” Christopher Franklin, President and CEO of Aqua America and president of NAWC’s Board of Directors, said. “The Board of Directors and members of NAWC thank Michael for his hard work and his commitment to our industry. We wish him well in his future endeavours.”

“It has been my pleasure and a privilege to lead NAWC during a period of increasing attention to the critical importance of water infrastructure and services to the nation and the need for innovative financing and management that the private sector delivers every day to communities across the country,” Deane commented. “The association is well positioned for growth and continued success.”
