The Queen has been pleased to appoint Mr Mohammed Saddiq, DL, as Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of the County of Somerset on the retirement of Mrs Annie Maw, CVO, on 29 October 2022.
Mohammed Saddiq, DL, is a highly regarded professional in the utilities and renewable energy sector, currently working as Executive Director of Operations at Wessex Water.

He has also served further afield, as the Independent Chair of Bristol Green Capital Partnership, Deputy Chair of the Board of Trustees of Bristol University, a Board Member of both the West of England Local Enterprise Partnership and the West of England Initiative, and a trustee of Penny Brohn Cancer Care.
Mr Saddiq lives at Midford, near Bath, with his wife Paula. They have five children.
