UTILITY WEEK | 2ND - 8TH JUNE 2017 | 21 Operations & Assets Guiding stars While the Stars Awards focus on the tireless commitment and achieve- ments of teams and individuals within the utilities workforce, Utility Week also recognises that great leaders have a big part to play in supporting those success stories. They inspire employees, boost morale, act as role models, nurture and mentor talent. This year, for the first time, the Stars Awards pay tribute to such leader- ship with our Guiding Stars nomina- tions. Along with awards partner Energy & Utility Skills, and based on industry recommendations, we have identified a group of executive leaders who have demonstrated outstanding workforce and sector leadership. Those leaders are • Mark Horsley, chief execu- tive, Northern Gas Networks; • Cathryn Ross, chief execu- tive, Ofwat; • Alan Sutherland, chief execu- tive, Wics; • Peter Simpson, chief execu- tive, Anglian Water; • Heidi Mottram, chief execu- tive, Northumbrian Water; • Tony Cocker, former chief executive of Eon UK; • Juliet Davenport, chief execu- tive, Good Energy. All of these leaders have gone above and beyond the call of duty to spend time and invest passion in improving the accessibility of the utilities sector inspiring new talent to consider what opportuni- ties it might offer them. They have supported mentoring schemes, championed new training frame- works and collaborated with peers and rivals to align and incentivise collective action on shared skills challenges. Many of them have also shown themselves to be paragons of ambition and leadership, setting an example for those who will follow in their footsteps. More information about the contributions of these leaders will be revealed at the Stars Awards ceremony on 23 June.
