Mr Berteaud said in particular that "I am particularly touched by this election and thank all the members of IOWater for having chosen me as President of the Governing Board. IOWater is a formidable machine which, under the leadership of its successive Presidents and General Managers, has become indispensable to most water stakeholders. My thanks go to Pierre Roussel and Jean-Francois Donzier for their work over the years. To succeed them is quite a challenge, be sure that with our new General Manager, Eric Tardieu, we will tackle it with the greatest determination".
