Ms Quick’s appointment is historic for the water authority. She will become its first female Managing Director.

“This is a truly exciting appointment for our business,” GMW Chairman Diane James AM said.

“The Minister for Water has set the key priority for our business as transforming to a new model that improves operations, keeps water prices low for customers and irrigators and supports the future growth of the irrigation district across our region.

“Charmaine is the right person to lead this change.”

Ms Quick is known for her ability to influence and drive change at an organisation level, nationally and internationally for asset management, relationship contract management and customer service.

She lists one of her key achievements as driving improvements in asset management at Melbourne Water through the development of its asset strategy.

This strategy is driving year on year efficiencies that ensures efficient services for its customers today, tomorrow and into the future.

“It is an exciting time to join GMW where there is a strong vision of transformation to a service centric, efficient organisation,” Ms Quick said. 

Her experience in agriculture was gained growing up on the family farm at Noradjuha in the Wimmera. She says it is this experience that ensures she understands the value of water and its importance to the social fabric of a community.
