Nubian Water Systems , Australian owned sustainable water saving systems provider, has announced the appointment of Barry Porter to the role of CEO. Barry joins Nubian with over 20 years of leadership experience having led successful performance transformations across a variety of industry sectors in the UK, Europe and Asia-Pacific.  

Barry Porter will be tasked with raising the company’s profile in the water sustainability solutions area, focusing particularly on Nubian’s innovative technology and delivery to capture market share.

Gary Zamel, Chairman of Nubian, said; “We are delighted to have Barry on board. He is a highly regarded executive with global management and sales experience.”

“Barry will be responsible for cementing our strong footprint in Australia and expanding our global presence, where we are already delivering solutions to the Middle East and are about to enter the North American market. With accreditation and patents in Australia and the US, Nubian is setting a new standard of excellence in sustainable water systems.”

Commenting on his new role, Barry said; "This is an exciting period for Nubian. We are dedicated to providing sustainable water solutions for the urban environment not only through our leading greywater treatment but also through our innovative water purification, quality monitoring and remote management technology.”  

The 2003 UN World Water Development Report has estimated that the quantity of water available will have decreased by 30% in 2023. The key contributing factor impacting this trend is the urbanisation of the population.  

Nubian Water Systems is committed to combating this process through the manufacture and implementation of organic treatment systems using chemical free products.

“Water is the world’s priority. It is not just an issue for rural areas or in periods of drought; with the rise in population, urbanisation and climate change, sustainable water should be on everyone’s agenda. It is Nubian’s hope that our commitment to delivering quality, environmentally friendly water saving systems will bring about positive change in the way the world uses its limited water supply,” commented Barry.
