WWLA - an employee owned, niche water and land management consultancy firm - have great pleasure in announcing two new shareholders to the company effective 1 June 2020; Chris Frost and Josh Mawer.
Chris is WWLA’s Primary Industry Infrastructure Advisor and Principal based in our Whangarei Office and has been appointed a Principal.
Being born and bred on a farm in Northland, Chris has an instinctive understanding of rural enterprises and their complex functional interplay with natural resources (climate, water, landscapes), and their place and importance to communities and support services. Chris is exceptionally talented at understanding client requirements, and packaging solutions that meet these requirements cost effectively using his knowledge and the innovative technical team that supports him.
Chris’s knowledge and connections in Northland were one of the key reasons WWLA were successful in winning the Northland Water Storage and Use project. We thank and reward Chris for joining our team 14 months ago, and look forward to many more exciting projects and successes into the future.
Josh is a Senior Hydrologist and the Hydrology Team Leader based in our Auckland Office. Josh has been with WWLA for nearly two years and has been appointed a Senior Associate.
Josh brings a technical background in coastal and hydrological modelling gained in Australia, the UK and New Zealand. In the two years with WWLA, Josh has shown strong commitment to project delivery and leadership capabilities, with a natural aptitude for management of staff and projects, and technical mentoring, testament to which is the growth of the hydrology team.
The future is looking very bright in Josh’s field of expertise, with current and future water storage and allocation projects looking set to explode with freshwater reforms occurring across New Zealand.
Both new shareholders demonstrate a commitment to the company and our clients through honesty, integrity and high level of responsiveness, innovation and service delivery. We welcome them both as shareholders and look forward to building on and sharing in the success of the company.
