Paul O'Donohue stands down as Managing Director of Central Highlands Water

After almost 11 years as Managing Director at Central Highlands Water (CHW), Paul O’Donohue will be standing down in mid-2022.

O’Donohue’s tenure has seen him work through significant changes for the utility, including leading safety reforms and cultural step change for CHW staff and contractors, innovation and digital transformation to a more customer-centric operating model, and more recently overseeing the challenges of day-to-day operations through the COVID-19 pandemic.

Angeleen Jenkins, the Board of Directors Chairperson for CHW, paid tribute to O’Donohue and his years of service.

“Paul has been an industry leader and member of the Victorian Water Sector and wider community and Central Highlands Water has directly benefited under Paul’s committed and capable leadership over his many years of service,” Jenkins said.

“I would like to personally acknowledge Mr O’Donohue for his values driven leadership, exceptional governance and professional standards, and the pivotal role that he has played to build stakeholder goodwill.

“Mr O’Donohue’s customer-centric focus and effort to be a visible leader within the 15 LGA’s we service has been exemplary.”

The CHW Board has commenced the formal process to recruit a new Managing Director.
