The U.S. Water Alliance announced that Radhika Fox will be its next president. Fox is currently the director of the Value of Water Coalition and previously directed policy and government affairs for the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission.

“Radhika Fox is a visionary leader that will inspire and excite our membership,” said Dick Champion, chair of the alliance board. “Under Radhika’s exceptional direction, the U.S Water Alliance has been honored to staff the Value of Water Coalition, a diverse coalition that educates and inspires people about how water is essential, invaluable, and worthy of investment. Her experience with the Value of Water Coalition—coupled with her diverse policy experience—makes her the perfect person to steer us into a one water future.”

“We founded the Alliance to unite diverse partners around a national water vision—one that focuses on sustainability and changing the paradigm of how we view and value water,” said Howard Neukrug, founding member and vice chair of the alliance board, and water commissioner for the city of Philadelphia. “To achieve that, we must build partnerships and collaboration within the water sector and beyond. Radhika is a unifying force that will elevate our one water movement to the next level.”

“I am honored to serve as the next president of the U.S. Water Alliance,” Fox said. “The Alliance is committed to collaboration, driving innovation, and bringing people together around positive solutions to our nation’s water challenges. I look forward to continuing that tradition as its next president.”

Fox has more than 20 years of experience in developing policies, programs and issue-based advocacy campaigns. In addition to her previous work at the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission, she also served as the Federal Policy Director at PolicyLink, where she coordinated the organization’s policy on a wide range of issues, including infrastructure investment, transportation, sustainable communities, economic inclusion, and workforce development. Fox holds a B.A. from Columbia University and a Masters in City and Regional Planning from the University of California at Berkeley, where she was a HUD Community Development Fellow.
