Meet our team

Dr Bill Brierley Chief Executive
bbrierley@FBA.org.uk | 015394 87701
I am passionate about the need to halt the decline of the fresh water community and believe that the FBA, building on our 85 year history of excellence in science, facilities and expertise has a pivotal role to play in influencing, coordinating and facilitating the freshwater science agenda. I also see the FBA as a focus for freshwater education and science both in the UK and around the world, a provider of robust data, information and evidence, training and publications for a wide range of audiences. All of this will contribute to providing the pragmatic solutions and delivery mechanisms that will enable us to protect and manage our very precious and vulnerable freshwater systems. A member of the FBA for many years and a member of the FBA’s Council from 2008 to 2012, I led the strategy group and was Acting Chairman of Council in 2014.
