Baker has been with American Water since 1995 and successfully led many parts of the business. Prior to his most recent role leading one of American Water’s largest states, he served as senior vice president of American Water’s former Western Division, which included Arizona, California, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Missouri and New Mexico. Baker’s other roles included president of both Indiana American Water and Michigan American Water, vice president of Business Development for the Central Region and Eastern Division manager for Illinois American Water.

“I can’t thank David enough for the value he has brought to our business and our customers. Many times we asked David to take on new challenges and he always did so with enthusiasm and commitment. He will be missed and we wish him well,” said Walter Lynch, president and COO of American Water Regulated Operations. “At the same time, I am very pleased to announce that Bill Varley will now lead our New Jersey regulated operations in addition to our New York subsidiary. Bill brings a wealth of knowledge and experiences to this expanded role, recently doubling our New York operations through a major acquisition last year.”
