January 2009: Cowater Expands Staff at Ottawa Headquarters

Cowater is pleased to announce the addition of two more staff at its headquarters operations in Ottawa.

Mr. Ted Robinson has been chosen for the position of Vice President, Municipal Services and Enterprise Development. He joins Cowater after a decades-long career as a senior official in the public sector, and almost ten years of international consulting activities. Mr. Robinson will have full responsibility for the day-to-day activities of this Group, its business development, and all aspects of its finance and administration components. Mr. Robinson is also responsible for the Group’s key relationships (donors, clients, multiple level governments, partners, etc.) and brings senior level support and credibility to the continued success of the CIDA Devolution Support Program in Pakistan. In addition, he will provide strategic oversight and input to all of the Group’s projects, and will serve as an integral member of Cowater’s senior management team.

Mr. Tom Monastyrski is the most recent addition to the Social Development Group, where he is a Project Manager responsible for liaisons with consortium partners, and for business development. Having spent most of the past decade working on development projects in Ukraine and Albania, Cowater is delighted to welcome him home to Canada.
