Turner will remain a key spokesperson for CWT UK & Ireland for media and industry conferences.
In addition, Aubrey King, who has been with CWT for 33 years, is promoted to Director of Supplier Management for CWT UK & Ireland, and becomes part of the CWT UK & Ireland leadership team, reporting to Waller and Jennifer Charlton, Vice President Global Supplier Management.
