Martin Baggs joins board of WRc
WRc, the innovation consultancy in the water, gas, waste and resources sectors, has appointed Martin Baggs as a non-executive member of its board.
Baggs recently stepped down as CEO of Thames Water, after leading the company for seven years. In his time at Thames he was responsible for overseeing the development of the £4.2BN Thames Tideway Tunnel, and the formation of the three major alliances encompassing the key sector delivery partners in new long term strategic partnership arrangements promoting collaboration and innovation. Prior to his time at Thames, he was an executive director at Macquarie with responsibility for the portfolio of utility investments across Europe including gas distribution networks, metering and renewables businesses.
His long career in the water industry has also seen him undertake senior roles at South East Water and Southern Water. He is a Fellow of the Institution of Civil Engineers and a Liveryman of the Worshipful Company of Water Conservators.
Martin Baggs said: “This is an exciting time to be joining WRc and I look forward to working with the Board and the Executive team as the company continues to grow driving innovation across industry whilst also providing key services as a trusted independent advisor.”
Ron Chapman, Chairman of WRc, added: “We are delighted to have someone of Martin’s calibre join the WRc Board and look forward to working with him to support the executive team during this period of rapid expansion.”
