Professor Cabrera has over 20 years of experience in the field of urban water management. Enrique is a lecturer on fluid mechanics at the Polytechnic University of Valencia and serves as vice-dean of their industrial engineering faculty.

Hamanth Kasan has also been elected as IWA Vice President. Mr. Kasan is general manager of Rand Water in South Africa. Hamanth’s educational and training background includes a PhD in science, and a graduate diploma in engineering. He has also been vice president of the African Water Association.

IWA Executive Director Kala Vairavamoorthy commented:

“Many congratulations to Enrique Cabrera and Hamanth Kasan, who will make excellent IWA Vice-Presidents. Both are well known to IWA, having served with distinction on the IWA Board, as well as holding other roles previously. IWA looks forward to their active leadership and support in the coming period.”

Both Professor Cabrera and Mr Kasan were nominated for vice presidential roles at IWA earlier this year. They later faced an election during the IWA General Assembly, held virtually on 21 April 2021, to determine who would fill these prestigious roles.
