Press Release – Capacity Infrastructure Services
David Hill, chief executive of the council-owned organisation water management company Capacity Infrastructure Services, today announced his resignation from the company.
Mr Hill has been chief executive of Capacity since it was formed by Wellington and Hutt city councils in 2003, to manage their water supply, stormwater and wastewater networks.
Capacity took on Upper Hutt’s water services management in 2008, and Mr Hill has been leading negotiations over the past two years to include both Upper Hutt and Porirua City as co-owners and clients.
“These negotiations are now in their final stages. After 10 years, the time is right for someone with fresh energy and ideas to take Capacity to the next stage.”
Mr Hill said he was enormously proud of the work his staff had achieved since Capacity’s establishment. “It’s been a privilege and a pleasure to lead such a dedicated team of men and women, who have proved their worth to their communities time and again – not least during the recent storms, floods, and earthquakes.
“We have proved that the shared service model is the right one for managing water services in the Wellington region.”
Mr Hill said he would remain with Capacity until the end of the year, after which he would pursuing other business and personal interests.
Capacity’s chairman Peter Allport said the board would begin a search for a new chief executive in the near future.
