CEO Nubian appointed to board of waterAustralia

Wednesday, 28 November, 2012

Australia’s water industry body, waterAustralia, yesterday announced the newest addition to its board - Barry Porter, CEO Nubian Water Systems. Porter assumes the role of Non-Executive Director and, alongside the existing board members, will help waterAustralia achieve its strategy to support the Australian water industry.

Porter has been chosen for his broad expertise as a strategic business developer and for his extensive leadership experience. Over the last 18 months he has led the doubling of Nubian and cemented its position as a leader in building-centric water treatment and recycling solutions for domestic, commercial and industrial markets.

Porter said, “I am thrilled to be appointed to the board of waterAustralia. Water is the world’s priority and waterAustralia works hard to bring industry together to manage Australia’s most difficult water issues.

“The Australian water industry is a large beast and the biggest challenge facing the Board is how to leverage the amazing talent here, dissect the innovation being produced and then present it to the world. This is a feat I look forward to contributing to.”

Graham Dooley, Chairman waterAustralia, said, “We are pleased to have Barry on board. Nubian’s carved out a strong position in the industry and Barry’s experience in the SME sector gives him a perspective that is highly valued around the waterAustralia board table.”

The Australian Department of Innovation, Industry, Science, Research and Tertiary Education commissioned a survey to waterAustralia which revealed the total revenue produced by the water industry is estimated at AU$45.7bn (2009-10). 

Porter said, “This is an exciting period for both the Australian water industry and waterAustralia and I look forward to contributing to the overall objectives of the organisation.”
