THE GWMWater board has advertised the water corporation's top job.
Current managing director Mark Williams has held the position since 2012. He has been with GWMWater and the former Grampians Water since 1996.
Board chairman Peter Vogel said it was a government policy to advertise managing director positions when contracts were ending.
"Mark's contract will be up in April, so it is policy in the water industry for the board to advertise that position six months before the contract ends," Mr Vogel said.
"We will be looking at shortlisting applicants next week and will be hopefully doing interviews at the end of next month.
"The board has been very pleased with Mark's work since he started the role."
Mr Williams won CEO Magazine's 2018 Energy and Resources Executive of the Year category.
