OBE for RJB
Bob Baty, South West Water's Chief Executive, has received an OBE from Her Majesty the Queen at a ceremony at Buckingham Palace.
The award, first announced in June in the Queen's Birthday Honours list, is given in recognition of over 40 years service in the water industry.
Commenting on his 'gong' Bob said "I am very surprised but honoured and delighted to receive the award, particularly as it is given in recognition of work in the water industry. I have been very fortunate to have worked alongside many skilled colleagues throughout my working life who have all worked extremely hard to deliver a wide range of environmental improvements, including the 'Clean Sweep' programme - the largest coastal sewage clean-up programme of its type in Europe."
"I see this award as recognition of a huge team effort."
