New managers ready to deliver for St George

26 Oct 2010

SunWater management of local service delivery within the St George Water Supply Scheme and the water company’s overall operations throughout Queensland’s South West is now in the hands of two new employees.

SunWater Infrastructure Management General Manager Barry Jeppesen this week confirmed the appointment of Peter Collett as Area Operations Manager South and Karan Quartermaine as St George Service Delivery Manager.

Mr Jeppesen said the two new managers held extensive water industry experience and was confident they would ensure SunWater continued to deliver on its service commitment to customers.

The new appointments follow the well-earned retirement of former St George Service Delivery Manager Daryl Kann after more than 40 years with SunWater and the departure of former Area Operations Manager Steve Goudie who left the organisation to pursue other career opportunities.

New Service Delivery Manager Karan Quartermaine, a Goondiwindi local, said she and her team looked forward to meeting the daily challenges associated with managing the region’s extensive water supply scheme as well as working closely with St George customers to achieve beneficial outcomes.

“There have been a number of changes that have taken place over the past 12 months within the St George office and I am determined to ensure these changes deliver efficient and effective services not just in an operational context but also in terms of improved communication between SunWater and the St George farming community,” Mrs Quartermaine said.

New Area Operations Manager Peter Collett, who has recently relocated from SunWater’s cotton-focused Emerald water supply scheme, will now oversee the organisation’s southern operations from SunWater’s Toowoomba base.

“I look forward to working co-operatively with our Irrigator Advisory Council representatives on all scheme-related issues including the negotiation of work programs and agreed standards of service,” he said.
