Water Corporation Chief Executive Officer Sue Murphy today announced that she has decided not to renew her contract, which expires at the end of the year.

“I love the Water Corporation, its people, intellect, purpose and role as an enabler of virtually everything that happens in our State. It has been my absolute privilege to lead the organisation.” Water Corporation Chief Executive Officer Sue Murphy said.

Mrs. Murphy has spent a decade as CEO and has played a key role in Western Australia’s future by maintaining water supplies at a demanding and complex time of declining rainfall and resources-led growth.

“I thank Sue for her strong contribution to managing the Water Corporation over the last 10 years.” Minister for Water Dave Kelly said.

“She has been a figurehead for efforts to secure Perth’s water supplies, for now and well into the future, at a time of climate change.”

She was appointed as CEO in November 2008 and is only the second person to fill the role since the Water Corporation was first established in January 1996.

Recruitment process for the Water Corporation’s next CEO will be led by the Board and will include a national search.
