FYLD Appoints Former Thames Water Lead


FYLD has appointed Joshua Wood as Director – Water Sector – a newly created role that sees him accelerating FYLD’s global growth plans in the sector.

Joshua brings close to a decade of operations management experience to this role, having held various roles within FYLD and Thames Water. As part of the leadership team, Joshua will work closely with the product development, business development and client delivery teams, to progress and communicate the platform’s continued innovations to FYLD’s customers.

His appointment comes as the global water sector battles major challenges surrounding water resources and environmental protection, with FYLD implementing solutions across the sector with positive and measurable impacts on pollution and leakage. These are issues that affect regions in which FYLD has a strong presence, including the UK, North and South America, as well as targeted areas for expansion such as Australia and the Middle East.

Joshua said: “FYLD is committed to tackling the pain points the water sector faces through deployment of sustainable solutions that promote efficiency and increase productivity. Our game changing technology continues to streamline and optimise field force management to address the industry’s biggest challenges.

“Ultimately, FYLD helps fieldworkers in safety-critical sectors stay out of harm’s way while boosting productivity. I look forward to continuing to offer my industry expertise to embed our award-winning technology in contractor and water utility companies around the world, to make sure everyone gets home safe at the end of each working day.”

Shelley Copsey, CEO at FYLD, said: “2023 is a year of strategic expansion at FYLD. We are targeting new geographies and strive to continue transforming the productivity of AI-powered field operations. Joshua’s new role is pivotal to this growth and we are delighted to have him lead our global water services offering. By continuing to demonstrate our innovation and capabilities in the water sector, we aim to replicate the results we’re experiencing in regions where FYLD is deployed. We are already having positive initial conversations with major utilities in Australia, which we are excited to progress this year. Joshua will play a key role in leading this strategic growth for FYLD, while delivering his invaluable industry insights to our team and customers.”
