EURAWASSER Nord GmbH, a company belonging to REMONDIS Aqua and the largest water supplier in the German state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, has reorganised its executive management team. Julia Behrendt, head of corporate development at REMONDIS Aqua / EURAWASSER, was appointed managing director in the middle of September and is now working alongside technical managing director, Robert Ristow, and is responsible for strategic development and communications. Thomas Ronge-Leiding, a commercial manager at REMONDIS Aqua, has also joined the executive team as the managing director responsible for commercial matters.
By creating a team of three managing directors, REMONDIS Aqua is underlining the important position that EURAWASSER Nord GmbH has in the REMONDIS Group as the “lighthouse project” in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. Andreas Bankamp, representing the shareholder REMONDIS Aqua, commented: “By appointing Julia Behrendt and Thomas Ronge-Leiding – both experienced managers from our company group – we are reinforcing our intention to further develop EURAWASSER Nord GmbH and to strengthen both the firm itself and its workforce as it looks to overcome the future challenges of the water sector in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.”
EURAWASSER, he stressed, is a flagship company that provides a reliable supply of water in and around Rostock using state-of-the-art technology and at fair prices. Andreas Bankamp continued: “Rostock is an important economic region in the north of Germany. Over the last few years, EURAWASSER has introduced new services, such as managing wastewater from large cruise ships, and it will continue to further extend its portfolio. This future development is now in the safe hands of this new management trio.”
EURAWASSER has been working as an independent service provider on behalf of local authorities and water associations in the state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern since 1993. EURAWASSER works together with Warnow-Wasser- und Abwasserverband (WWAV), Wasserversorgungs- und Abwasserzweckverband Güstrow-Bützow-Sternberg (WAZ) and the utility companies in Güstrow and Schwerin. Today, 25 percent of all people living in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern receive their drinking water from REMONDIS Aqua’s subsidiary. That is more than 400,000 local inhabitants.
