Peter Leahy joins the RSC team as Operations Manager

We're delighted to welcome Peter Leahy to the River Stewardship Company team as he takes up the post of Operations Manager.

Peter has worked in management for over 16 years in various utility fields covering gas, electric and water and has most recently worked for the Environmental Agency.

Here at the RSC, he will be leading the way to Net Zero and implementing our CoP26 legacy grant (Conference of the Parties (COP) is an annual event that brings governments together to discuss and review how climate change is being managed domestically and internationally, COP26 was hosted by the UK Government in Glasgow in 2021) with an initial project to oversee the companies fleet of electric vehicles (EV) and installation of site EV charging stations.

My role here is very diverse, which I really enjoy as I get to be involved in many aspects from implementing and planning, health safety and compliance, procurement and operational management of our local waterway systems, treatment of invasive species and ground maintenance. Working for the RSC is also very rewarding as the positive impact made on the environment can be appreciated by all, present and future.
One of my main tasks is to look at our sustainability and carbon footprint and to seek efficiencies towards a carbon neutral future. For example, external funding has enabled me to action the installation of EV charging points for our company vehicles which currently sits at 6 fully electric vehicles including cars and vans.
I am a family man and love spending time with my wife and 3 children, 2 boys and 1 girl. I enjoy travelling and seeing new places,  I am a very sociable person and enjoy evenings with my friends for the beer and laughter. I also enjoy a round of golf (if it's going my way) but it's the taking part that counts or so I have been told!
I am looking forward to my role within the RSC, finding out more about the team and what they do - offering real benefits to our local communities that help establish a brighter future for our upcoming generations.
