Committee members

l-r Damian Lawson, Tony Ochsner, Nick Hewer-Hewitt, John Clemens, Martyn Simpson, Murray Clayton, Mike Monaghan, Stu Craib (outgoing), and Nigel Hesford.  

After many years on various operator group committees, including being the first chairman of WIOG, Stu Craib has decided it is time to bring some younger blood onto the committee and did not stand for re-election this year.

To quote Stu "WIOG has gone from strength to strength since its beginnings and to continue this growth we need an ongoing injection of young and dedicated committee members to take us into the future. By stepping down I am forcing this to happen"

With Stu not standing and their only being one nomination for committee an election was not required.

We welcome new committee member Tony Ochsner from Wellington Water.

Tony has worked in the water industry for almost 15 years , the first 12 being at Palmerston North's Turitea Water Treatment Plant. During this time he successfully completed his Operator Certificate in Water Treatment and later a site Technician ( Diploma ) in Water Treatment. Tony now works at Wellington Water ( ex Greater Wellington Regional Council ) he is with the Bulk water team as an Operations Technician. Tony has been heavily involved with WIOG since the beginning, joining as a member its second year of conception , Tony recently travelled with the WIOG group to the 2014 Victoria Tour and Bendigo Conference in Australia. Tony was also fundamental in organising the Lower North Island inaugural Operations Forum. Tony is passionate about the operations sector of the industry and is keen to get stuck in and work hard for the WIOG committee.
