Fraser Clark

Fraser is Principal Advisor, Strategy at Wellington Water. He has worked in the water sector for 4 years after more than 15 years’ experience in senior leadership and strategic roles in the electricity and energy sector. His background includes regulation (as General Manager Market Services at the Electricity Authority) and industry development (as CEO of the New Zealand Wind Energy Association).

At Wellington Water, Fraser has been leading their approach to Te Mana o te Wai and their response to climate change. He was one of the co-authors of Water New Zealand’s “Navigating to Net Zero” guidance document and is a member of the DIA’s Asset Management, Operations and Stormwater Reference Group and the Infrastructure Sustainability Council’s Water Advisory Group.

Fraser says that the pending reform of the water sector provides significant opportunity to take a big step forward on capability, capacity, delivery, and customer outcomes. Water New Zealand will have an important role supporting the sector to share and lift its capability and knowledge, and work collectively to improve outcomes for water, the environment and our communities.
