Chair, South East Water

Lucia Cade

Lucia has over 25 years’ experience as an engineer, executive and non-executive director in Australian water utilities in a career that started in the early days of digital systems modelling – she has been involved in digital transformation and technology-led innovation ever since.

As Chair of South East Water, her perspective from the boardroom will focus on meeting organisational purpose and vision, business structures to meet customer expectations, the role of innovation in digital transformation and the balance in defining a risk appetite that supports bold thinking without jeopardising customer, regulatory and legislative obligations.

She has extensive industry expertise in utilities, infrastructure construction and professional services consulting in the water, gas networks, oil and gas, and facilities management sectors.
