Essential Utilities, a US water, wastewater and natural gas provider, has appointed Shreen Williams as director, risk management for its water and gas utility operations. As director, she will report directly to Essential’s general counsel, Chris Luning.
Williams comes to Essential from the City of Philadelphia where she was risk management claims manager, responsible for the city’s claims unit including a staff of professional claims adjusters who investigated all property and personal injury claims to determine liability under applicable laws.
In addition to negotiating and settling such claims against the city, she was also responsible for recovering debt owed to the city as a result of damage to city property and working proactively with the safety and loss prevention staff to mitigate risk through the establishment of public safety practices and initiatives.
“Shreen’s extensive experience in risk management in an organisation as large as the City of Philadelphia, coupled with her previous experience with insurance companies and other private sector experience, has provided her with a broad and well-rounded background that will be put to great use at Essential,” said Luning.
