Andy Newton

Owner

The last two decades have been dedicated to the dynamic world of family-owned businesses. My journey began with a profound immersion into the intricacies of family enterprises, and over the years, I've accumulated invaluable insights into their unique challenges and opportunities. My commitment to this sector extends beyond our company's walls, I've had the privilege to contribute to the national discourse on family businesses through my involvement with National Boards for Family Business Australia. In my current capacity, I'm focused on driving Watt Utilities forward strategically. Whether it's expanding our market presence, enhancing operational efficiencies, or nurturing our core values, my goal is to ensure that we not only survive but thrive in an ever-evolving business landscape.
