The Water Industry: Bridging the Talent Gap to Embrace Digital Technologies.

Lyle King By Lyle King

As a recruitment consultant for the global water and wastewater markets, I’ve noticed a challenge that we must overcome to truly embrace the advantages of digital technologies: the talent gap.

In this CM Conversations episode, I speak about this with Garry Tabor, Managing Director of ATi (a business that was recently acquired by US-based Badger Meter) and Samantha Vince, Head of Water Quality at the UK water company, Bristol Water.

In our discussion, we talk about how digital solutions are changing the landscape of the water industry and the importance of finding the right talent to support this trend.

Have you noticed this trend too? I’d love to know what you think of our discussion. Please email me at if you have any feedback.
