Two of Busselton Water’s board of directors’ terms have been renewed by the Minister for Water including the deputy chair, providing the regional water supplier with continued expertise and stability.

Long-time water industry leader, Geoffrey Oddy, and local businesswoman Christine Kershaw’s terms were each extended for another three years.

Busselton Water chair, Helen Shervington said she was pleased to have the two board members’ terms renewed.

“Continued stability of the Busselton Water Board is integral, especially given these unprecedented times,” she said.

“Geoff and Christine are vital board members, providing significant leadership and strategic direction for the organisation.”

Deputy chair Mr Oddy was first appointed to the Busselton Water board of directors in 2014 and has since been reappointed twice.

Ms Kershaw is a trainer and consultant with a background in urban and regional development and environmental management. This is her second term on the board.

The board has seven members.
