Process begins to recruit new Water Authority of Fiji CEO

The process has started to recruit a new Water Authority of Fiji Chief Executive Officer with a strong engineering and technical background in water and wastewater management to oversee major projects scheduled to begin early next year. This includes the 405 million US dollars Greater Suva Area Water and Waste Water Scheme.

Water Authority Chairman PL Munasinghe says the new CEO will replace Opetaia Ravai, whose contract has been discontinued. Munasinghe says while they thank Ravai for his excellent work over the past five years, it is time to position the Authority to meet the engineering and technical challenges ahead.

He says Water Authority of Fiji is entering a new era that is becoming highly technical and they need a person with extensive hands-on experience in water and wastewater project development to lead the Authority.

Munasinghe says the new CEO will be named soon.
