Account Management

We’ve built a team we’re really proud of, full of industry experts who are committed to making water work for you

Your dedicated account manager will:

  • Have an excellent insight into the world you operate in – getting to know you and your business or organisation inside out.
  • Be your main point of contact – ensuring you receive an excellent service and help to deliver cost and efficiency savings
  • Be your personal consultant – ensuring you’re on the right tariff and have the right solution in place.
  • Be your champion in the water industry – acting on your behalf to influence, communicate and liaise with the regional wholesaler as well as presenting your case in any dispute.

You’ll benefit from our industry expertise, with each account manager specialising in one of three sectors:

  • Industrial and manufacturing – experts in the management of process water use and controlling trade effluent compliance and costs.
  • Commercial – helping you stay in control of your water and drainage charges across multi-site estates.
  • Public sector – understanding the importance of a reliable water supply.
