WaterAid thanks Adam Laidlaw for his service


14 Feb 2014 | AU

After six and a half years as Chief Executive of WaterAid Australia, Adam Laidlaw has resigned. On behalf of the Board, I would like to thank Adam for his passion and commitment to WaterAid’s vision of a world where everyone has access to safe water and sanitation. 

Adam leaves WaterAid having successfully grown the organisation from a small $2.4m operation in 2007 to an effective and authoritative $10.6m Australian NGO in 2014. Due in large part to Adam’s hard work and dedication, WaterAid is highly regarded by the Australian public, a growing number of committed supporters, government and the water industry. His leadership has had a significant and positive impact on the lives of many people in Southeast Asia, the Pacific, Africa and South Asia.
I know Adam will remain a passionate supporter of WaterAid's work and a strong advocate for the communities we serve. The Board is extremely proud of Adam’s achievements including building and leading a very strong team of highly competent and professional staff.
Adam’s last day as CEO of WaterAid will be Friday 21 March 2014. A process is now underway to recruit a new Chief Executive to lead the organisation through its next phase of development.
Once again, on behalf of the Board, staff and our many stakeholders, we thank Adam for his service and commitment to WaterAid, and wish him the very best in his future endeavours. 

Rob Skinner
Chair, WaterAid Australia
