Chris Johns has been named as the new Chief Financial Officer of Yorkshire Water.

Mr Johns is currently Finance Director of Northumbrian Water, a role he has held since January 2013.

He was previously Finance Director of Northern Gas Networks between 2006 and 2013 and before that worked in the regulated financial services industry in both Yorkshire and London.

“Chris brings wide financial experience from a number of regulated businesses and will be a great asset to the company,” said Yorkshire Water Chief Executive, Liz Barber.

“His appointment largely completes the changes we’ve been making to our leadership team which means that as we start the new five year period we have a strong balance of operating and financial expertise in place to help us reshape the company to deliver what our customers and Yorkshire expect of us.”

He officially joins the company from 1 June.
