With 18 years of experience in the chemical distribution sector, Lawrence provided treatment solutions for the water sector. He is set to bring expertise to Xylem’s range of services and solutions for water and wastewater across the water lifecycle.

Vincent Chirouze, managing director at Xylem South Africa, commented, “The challenges around water require the brightest minds and strong experience to develop solutions and new ideas. It’s about harnessing existing partnerships and building new ones, driving unique solutions for Africa.”

“He will help Xylem make even greater contributions to the wellbeing of customers, communities and the planet,” Chirouze added.
