The Alameda County Water District (ACWD) Board of Directors is pleased to announce the selection of Robert Shaver as the next General Manager of ACWD. His promotion comes after serving the last four years as Assistant General Manager and Head of Engineering. Shaver's selection is being made in anticipation of Walter L. Wadlow's retirement in December 2014. Shaver will be the ninth General Manager in the District's 100 year history.
Shaver brings a broad range of technical and managerial experience to his new role and has been a dedicated District employee for over 23 years; his experience includes over ten years at the executive management level.
"Mr. Shaver's comprehensive water utility experience, technical and financial expertise and knowledge of the community will greatly contribute to his leadership of the District," said Board President Paul Sethy. "The Board has worked with Mr. Shaver for many years and we look forward to continuing to work collectively in the best interest of the District and our customers," added Sethy.
In addition to his professional experience, Shaver holds a Bachelor's of Science degree in Civil Engineering from Virginia Tech and is a registered Professional Engineer in California.
Shaver is a member of several public service, technical and water industry organizations, including the American Society of Civil Engineers, Association of California Water Agencies, California Urban Water Agencies, American Water Works Association, Bay Area Waterworks Association, and Rotary International.
Shaver and his wife and daughter are longtime residents of Fremont and active in the community.
