G-MW finds new MD in Shepparton

By Geoff Adams

A senior manager with Melbourne Water has been appointed managing director of Goulburn-Murray Water.

Charmaine Quick, who has been with Melbourne Water for 19 years and lives in Shepparton, is the first female managing director of the organisation, responsible for irrigation water delivery in the Goulburn Murray Irrigation District.

She follows former managing director Pat Lennon, who resigned after an ombudsman investigation into expense claims last year.

Ms Quick, who is executive general manager of service delivery with Melbourne Water, is a graduate of Melbourne University and holds a masters in environmental science.

She will take up her duties on February 4

G-MW chair Diane James said this was "a truly exciting appointment for our business”.

“The Minister for Water has set the key priority for our business as transforming to a new model that improves operations, keeps water prices low for customers and irrigators and supports the future growth of the irrigation district across our region.

“Charmaine is the right person to lead this change.”
