Tom Mollenkopf resigns as CEO of the Australian Water Association

Monday, 11 February, 2013

After six years as Chief Executive Officer of the Australian Water Association, Tom Mollenkopf has announced that he will be standing down from the role in July this year.

AWA National President Lucia Cade said that the board and membership of AWA would be sad to see Mollenkopf leave.

“Tom has overseen a period of considerable growth and change in AWA at a very exciting time for the water industry. He has worked tirelessly in forging new relationships for the association both locally and internationally, represented the water industry well, has increased member services and grown membership,” said Cade.

“The board as a whole would like to thank Tom for his invaluable service and extend its best wishes as he resumes full-time residence in Melbourne. It has been a pleasure working with him over the last six years.”

Speaking to staff, Mollenkopf said that the AWA CEO role was one of the most interesting, rewarding and challenging jobs in the water sector in Australia and he was thankful to have had the opportunity to be in the position for six years.

“I have immensely enjoyed my time at AWA, including the support and friendship of a very talented group of professionals and a fine board of directors.

“I will be returning to Melbourne to pursue various commitments, including board roles at Western Water, WaterAid, Life Saving Victoria and Surf Life Saving Australia, together with committee roles with the International Water Association,” said Mollenkopf.

The AWA board will now commence a national search for a new CEO.
