New Appointments at Albion Water


Albion Water, the water and waste water services provider, has appointed a new managing director – Luke de Vial. Luke is a former Wessex Water employee who has worked in the water industry for more than 30 years. He first came into contact with Albion in 2017 when the two companies formed a joint venture and Luke was part of the team.

“I have joined Albion Water at an exciting time for the business. With the backing of Wessex Water, Albion is looking to grow its portfolio of housing developments and this year we’re launching a new website and developing our offer,” commented Mr de Vial. “We understand the issues and constraints faced by developers and house builders and we’re leading the industry in exploring new ways of providing water, waste water and environmental services in a flexible package that offers increased value.”

Luke started his career at Wessex Water as a hydrogeologist and then proceeded into water resources management, environmental strategy and more recently catchment management. His experience will strengthen Albion’s senior management team.

Victoria Ashton will also be joining the team as a technical manager. She holds an MSc in water resources technology and management, has 15 years of experience across the industry, and is an active water industry professional with expertise in the areas of water resources planning, demand management, metering, water efficiency, conservation and optimisation.

“I am looking forward to a new challenge at Albion Water and the opportunity to learn new skills. There is a promising and exciting future for us and competition in the water industry and I am looking forward to being a part of it,” commented Victoria.

When Albion Water was licensed by the Water Services Regulation Authority (Ofwat) in 1999, it was the first new entrant to compete against the monopoly water companies in England. As well as providing water and wastewater services to housing developers and builders it offers environmentally focused services that can enhance developments, making them attractive places to live or work.
