The managing director of Coliban Water has announced his departure, after more than seven years in the role.
Jeff Rigby started at Coliban Water in late 2011, after five years as managing director of Grampians Wimmera Mallee Water.
Coliban Water chairwoman Lucy Roffey said Mr Rigby restructured operations early on in his role with the company, which led to better outcomes for customers and the environment.
“Jeff commenced with Coliban Water at a time when the corporation was contending with significant financial challenges following the millennium drought,” Ms Roffey said.
“Through prudent management of the corporation’s finances under a long-range strategy, the organisation is now in a much stronger financial position and is a financially sustainable enterprise.”
Ms Roffey said Coliban Water was well-placed into the future because of Mr Rigby’s leadership.
Mr Rigby will finish with the company on February 18, to take up the role of managing director at Sunbury-based Western Water.
He has spent 30 years in the water industry.
Coliban Water’s board is expected to confirm an acting managing director soon.
