Thames Water boss sacked by board over failure to reduce leaks

Steve Robertson fired after his ‘unconvincing’ plans were
singled out by watchdog Ofwat

The boss of Thames Water, who was in line for £3.75m bonus for
fixing leaks, has been sacked with immediate effect after a row
over his failure to reduce leakage, it is understood.

Steve Robertson, who has led the UK’s biggest water company
serving 15 million people since 2016, was fired after a board
meeting on Friday afternoon. A source at the company said Robertson
was asked to leave because the board had decided “he’s not the
person to see the business through to the future.”
