Yarra Valley Water chief information officer Leigh Berrell has worked his last day at the utility after almost six years in the role, as he prepares to start a new job with Australia's largest car parts supplier.
Berrell joined the Victorian water and sewerage service provider in April 2011 as its chief information officer.
The following year Berrell and team brought IT back in-house after around 17 years relying on outsourcers - a project that earned him the title of Utilities CIO of the year in the 2013 iTnews Benchmark Awards.
Berrell's other achievements over his five-and-a-half year stint include a private cloud deployment, an online portal for customer self service, and automated processing of residential renter relocations.
He worked his last day at the utility on Friday and will take a one-week break before starting his new role as general manager of group information services with Bapcor, Australia's largest car parts supplier.
