The Solution To The Water Problem 

In Q4 of 2019, the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Abu Dhabi, approached Nellie Swanepoel of JD Exec, to conduct a mapping assignment of agents/distributors supplying water technologies across the Gulf region and across relevant sectors. Nellie also provided a briefing to Dutch companies during Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week (Jan 12 to 16th 2020) on water technology opportunities across sectors and a presentation on how to do business in the Gulf region, including how to select a local partner and when best to use a distributor, agent etc. Nellie did a wonderful job of identifying reliable and competent agents/distributors that have since remained an invaluable part of the Embassy network. We continue to leverage those contacts when we have incoming missions or when supporting Dutch water-tech SMEs break into the Gulf market. Throughout the assignment and even after, Nellie was attentive to our needs, flexible, and consistently went above and beyond expectations to deliver high quality services. We are thankful to her and strongly recommend them for other assignments.

Nellie was one of the unforgettable leaders I have worked for during my GE time. She was very respectable, knowledgeable , easy to approach and very humble. We all have enjoyed working for Nellie at office, as well as enjoyed her company outside office. She was very keen to build up a nice culture of collaboration, empowerment, experience sharing and most importantly a culture of trust . She made us all feel that we are a one big family, and we need support and help each other’s. Nellie is a perfect example of successful women in power, and the positive effect on delivering growth, developing the business as well as as on the building team spirit and collaborative working culture.

Water scarcity is a major country and business risk for all communities, businesses and manufacturing industries. Therefore strict reduction goals are set by utility governing bodies, SME’s and corporates under the continuously changing country legislation.

JDCEXECint helps communities and businesses to meet these legislation requirements with optimisation of water and energy reductions by leveraging the following three components:

Profit, Planet, and People


JDCEXECint leads effective Water Management, Waste Water Treatment & Process Technologies in numerous industries.  Water “use” optimisation and water re-use benefit the waste water treatment plants as well as operational water- and power usage. Discharges less polluted water and optimised air emissions which contribute to less or no fines contributes to the bottom line.  However, the economic impact is increasingly under scrutiny as both the impact of people and planet is measured. Adding more stress on profitability. JDCEXECint supports in optimising existing assets, productivity as well as the skillset of people working on these systems.

JDCEXECint advises on reduced demand- or improved demand management of water and energy sources. Emits less pollution and emission which contributes to less or no fines.

However, the economic impact is increasingly under scrutiny as both the impact of people and planet is measured. Adding more stress on profitability. Although buying price, operating costs and production is benchmarked; continuous improvement and monitoring is eminent. JDCEXECint supports in optimising existing assets productivity as well as the skillset of people working on these systems.


Only 2% of water on the planet is consumption viable for communities and businesses. Irresponsible water wastage which mostly results in increasing energy usage contributes to water scarcity and an increasing carbon footprint which is responsible for climate change and -disruptive.

JDCEXECint has the expertise in supporting knowledge on Water Management, Waste Water Treatment & Process Technologies in disruptive times.

Associated with this; the knowledge of renewable energy, energy and power mix for the future, water trading and management of climate disruptive impactors to assist with water- and food safety.

Although business should be about making people’s lives better (employees and communities), defining an inspiring purpose and turning promises into reality it is also about making a profit.

People’s lives can only be influenced if they know what change to adapt to and the impact their adaptation has in the bigger picture.  JDCEXECint supports communities and employees to understand what they can do to contribute to impact the bigger picture….sustainability and environmental health, safety practices, water reuse; a few courses to be mentioned.

About Nellie

Nellie Swanepoel

Nellie Swanepoel

President and Chief Executive Officer


As the  President and Chief Executive Officer of JDCExec International, I am currently based out of Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. My journey to launching JDCExec has been filled with many great adventures and achievements. Significantly, during my career of more than 30 years, I completed several courses in water treatment, as well as, process treatment of various industries amongst power generation, petrochemical and refinery, steel, mining minerals & processing, pulp and paper, chemical, automotive, food and beverage, pharmaceutical and institutional (facilities & resorts). Moreover, I strived for conscientious learning and hard work thus becoming an expert in water- and process-related industries and with these skills and expertise, I pioneered ground-breaking directions in the industry. 

When asked I would say that leadership comes naturally to me and I thoroughly enjoy imparting my knowledge to others. So much so, that my curiosity and passion lead me to complete my MBA in Leadership and Sustainability in 2015 at the University of Cumbria. 

Through my keen business strategy and aggressive business tactics together with my team, we grew a profitable business for General Electric Company (GE) Water & Process Technologies, Sub Saharan Africa. Additionally,  In my role as Managing Director, my exposure to different countries outside of Africa increased. Passionate and broad-minded I wanted to learn more about different cultures and business activities globally. Therefore, I relocated from South Africa to Dubai in 2010 supporting the GE Water & Process Technologies Middle East team with leadership skills and expertise in water- & process treatment. To our delight, a new window opened for both me and my colleagues in the Middle East. As an advantage of being based in Dubai, I transitioned into several new roles over the following years, allowing my curiosity in learning new cultures and their ways of conducting business to blossom. From the Cape to Cairo, Middle East, Asia Pacific, China, Europe, North America, and Latin America – what a wonderful journey it has been and the lessons learned will not soon be forgotten. 


In my latest journey, I am utilising both my leadership skills as well as expert skills in Water-, Process- & Energy Management in supporting interested parties with; External Analyses, Strategic Alternatives by Subsector / Region, Sustainability Strategist, Value proposition description, New business models description, Strategic Choices – Growth drivers, Resources and investments required to execute proposed business models, Risk assessment, Change Management and Training – on-line or face-to-face.
