In November 2014, Dr Andrew Storey of WRM was a finalist in the Water Professional of the Year category of the Australian Water Association (AWA) WA Water Awards for 2014. Hosted by the AWA and presented by the Department of Water and the Water Corporation, the annual awards recognise outstanding work by individuals and organisations who demonstrate leadership in managing and protecting the State ’s water resources. The Water Professional of the Year award acknowledges the best of the best in the WA water sector and honours individuals who have displayed passion and commitment to the water industry, while also demonstrating leadership and influence. Andrew was one of only seven finalists in the state in this prestigious and highly competitive award category.
As Andrew was unable to attend, Jess Delaney and Anton Mittra represented Andrew and WRM at the Awards Gala Dinner held in the Grand Ballroom of the Hyatt Regency, Perth. Jess and Anton were able to mix with other water industry professionals who have the same level of passion and commitment to managing water resources and protecting aquatic ecosystems. On the night, the winner of the Water Professional of the Year went to Malcolm Robb of the Department of Water, but being one of only seven finalists in this strong field reflects the high quality of work WRM do as a business and our dedication to water management in WA
