Strategic Panel Nominations

The Strategic Panel is the most senior industry group. It promotes, challenges and leads the operation and evolution of the market for the benefit of current and future non-household customers. The Strategic Panel is made up of market and water industry experts and independent members who bring a wealth of expertise.

On 19 January, the Panel Nominations Committee (PNC) interviewed candidates for the two retailer vacancies on the Strategic Panel. The PNC subsequently met on 22 January to deliberate on the outcome of the interviews and agreed that the following two candidates have been successful in securing the roles of Retailer Panel Members:

  • Johanna Dow from Business Stream
  • James Cleave from Everflow

Johanna will start her two-year term on the Panel from 1 March. James, who is a current Panel member, will begin his two-year re-appointment also from 1 March. As confirmed by the PNC at its meeting on 27 November 2023, the wholesaler position on Strategic Panel was filled by the sole nominee, Andrew Beaver, from Northumbrian Water. Andrew is a current Panel member and will also begin his two-year re-appointment from 1 March.

The PNC would like to thank trading parties for submitting nominations for these vacancies.
