First Head of Wales appointed by Ofwat

First Head of Wales appointed by Ofwat: Ofwat has established a permanent presence in Wales for the first time by announcing the appointment of its Head of Wales.

From the 1st September 2020, Bethan Evans will take on the position and will play an important role in ensuring Ofwat’s regulatory approach reflects the specific circumstances in the country and the regulator is participating in Welsh policy discussions.

Qualified as a chartered accountant in 2012, Ms Evans joins from KPMG where she is an Associate Director in the infrastructure advisory practice.

Ofwat said she has gained wide-ranging experience advising corporate clients and government on policy, strategic and commercial issues.

John Russell Senior Director added: “We are delighted to appoint Bethan as our first Head of Wales. Reflecting circumstances in Wales is important to us so it is vital that we work together with representatives of Welsh communities to examine how and when we need to take a different approach to align with Welsh legislation and policies.

“Bethan will play a key role in making sure we can participate fully in Welsh policy discussions and strengthen our relationships with our Welsh stakeholders. I look forward to working with her as we push the sector to deliver for customers, the environment and society in Wales.”

Ms Evans said she is “excited” to take on the role to ensure the wider community and Welsh customers benefit from resilient and reliable services.

She added: “Water is one of Wales’ greatest natural assets and must be managed sustainably and responsibly.

“Ofwat is driving progress in the sector for current and future generations and I look forward to working together with Welsh stakeholders to help deliver these ambitions.”
