Commenting on Pemberton's appointment, consulting managing director David Spencer said: “We’re using our breadth and depth of expertise to really drive change in the water sector, examining how we can use enhanced technology, process and data to improve leakage management and using asset modelling to determine burst locations.
"Ian is key to this and will help us to drive efficiency by supporting the water industry in a journey to end-to-end delivery. “
Pemberton said: “Amey has a worldwide reputation in infrastructure asset management and I am delighted to be tasked with growing our leakage management and water conservation business.
