Stephen Billingham retires from Board of Anglian Water

27 March 2020

Next week at the end of AMP6, our Chairman of the last five years, Stephen Billingham, will retire from the Board.

Stephen has steered the Board through the PR19 process, the change to our Articles of Association which embeds purpose within our business, and the recently requested CMA referral.

Stephen said: “It has been great to be part of Anglian. I have been impressed by all of our team who deliver a first class service to our customers. The level of innovation and the desire to be the best is everywhere in our company. I am sure that, as I have seen numerous times before, the current challenges facing the company will bring out the very best in the Anglian team for our customers, the environment and wider society.”

Peter Simpson, Anglian Water CEO, said: “I would like to thank Stephen on behalf of the Company, Board and our shareholders for his service to Anglian. He has led the Board through some challenging and important decisions, always with a concern for the good of all our stakeholders, employees and customers. We all wish him well for the future.”

Current Senior Independent Non-Executive Director, John Hirst will take over as Chairman from April. John first joined the Board in 2016, and is a former Chief Executive of the Met Office.
