Stantec appoints director to grow UK water business

Stantec has appointed Tim Williams as strategic growth and business development director for water and will focus on the strategic growth of Stantec’s water business across the UK. 

With 25 years’ experience in the water sector including operations, regulation, strategic planning and contract operations, prior to joining Stantec, Williams was head of asset strategy and planning and head of capital alliance for Welsh Water where he managed investment plans for PR09/14/19 and implemented asset management transformation plans.

Stantec hope that Williams’s extensive industry knowledge will bring a high-level of expertise, understanding and knowledge of the challenges faced across the sector to their business. “Tim brings an in-depth perspective on the water industry, coupled with an understanding of the changes happening in the sector and the impact on the communities they serve,” said Cath Schefer, UK managing director for Stantec. “With his talent and passion for the industry, I am confident he will provide immense value to our clients and teams throughout the UK, she said.”

Commenting on his new role, Williams said: “I am looking forward to connecting with our clients and partners and building those relationships. With the talent we have at Stantec and our ethos of ‘design with the community in mind’, I see a great opportunity to further grow our water business.”

Williams is also a former past president of the Institute of Water (Wales area), and a past member of the environmental protection advisory committee for Wales advising the Welsh Government.
