The voice of water consumers in Wales is set to receive a boost with the appointment of Ronnie Alexander as the Consumer Council for Waters (CCWater) new Local Consumer Advocate (LCA).
A highly respected public health professional, Ronnie possesses a wealth of experience within local and central government, including more than 20 years as Chief Environmental Health Officer for the Welsh Government.
Adept at facilitating engagement with a range of audiences, Ronnie has a considerable track record of driving improvement at all levels of organisational policy and strategy.
Welcoming Ronnie, Diane McCrea, Chair of CCWater Wales Committee, said: We are pleased to appoint Ronnie as the new LCA for Wales based on his interest in water issues and his ability to engage with the public, professionals and politicians to influence policy at all levels something he has done successfully over the past twenty years in Wales. He is a politically astute operator with robust communication skills: he will be a great addition to our team and CCWater overall. We look forward to working with Ronnie as part of our team as we continue to champion water customers rights in Wales.
Ronnie Alexander took up his post on 1 March 2013. The vacancy was due to the retirement of Norman Thomas who had been a member of the Wales Committee since 2005.
