WSAA's Young Utility Leaders announced

The Young Utility Leaders (YULs) for 2022/2023 have been announced, with Sydney Water’s Elliot Cichero selected as one of the recipients.

Each year the Water Services Association of Australia (WSAA) selects members aged 30 or under who are working in the water industry to receive personal and leadership skills development, and coaching from the Peter Cullen Trust. After 12 months, YULs will be able to pitch to the WSAA Board for the chance to win the Ross Young Scholarship.

“It’s an honour to be selected for this year’s program. I look forward to being inspired by senior experts in the urban water space and further developing my leadership skills,” Cichero said.

“I also welcome the opportunity to work with and learn from the experiences of the other young leaders in this year’s cohort and the different climate challenges they are facing across the country.”

Cichero works as a Resilience & Climate Change Adaption Analyst; this involves looking at how climate change is affecting Sydney Water’s assets and business functions. It also involves reporting on the company’s carbon emissions and progress towards net zero.

“I’m passionate about climate change mitigation and adaptation and I’m committed to being proactive in this space to ensure the future we leave for generations to come is sustainable.”

The other YULs for the year are: Esther Cooper, TasWater; Kate Buckley, Seqwater; Lachlan Glascodine, Melbourne Water; Liz Duguid, Water Corporation; and Ricardo Kobas, Barwon Water.
