Robert Napier CBE is to succeed Sir Adrian Montague CBE as Chairman of the Anglian Water Group.
In March 2014 Sir Adrian informed the Board of his intention to step down from the Board as soon as the company’s business plan for the period 2015-2020 (AMP6) had been agreed with water regulator Ofwat. This has now been completed, and coincides with Sir Adrian taking on a major new appointment as Chairman of Aviva Plc.
Sir Adrian has been Chairman of Anglian Water since March 2009. Mr Napier takes over as Chairman on 22nd January 2015.
