AEMO today announced that executive team members Alex Wonhas and Brett Hausler will be leaving the company.
AEMO CEO Daniel Westerman paid tribute to both Alex and Brett, saying they had made substantial contributions to Australia’s energy industry for many years, and leave with our thanks and best wishes.
“Alex has been instrumental in leading and implementing major change on behalf of AEMO, including the development of the Integrated System Plan, and the uplift in our connections capability”, he said.
“Alex’s contribution is valued across the industry for the way he led AEMO’s collaboration on outcomes that benefit Australian homes and businesses.
“Brett has been instrumental in many key energy industry reforms over his 22 years at AEMO and predecessor companies.
“Brett’s contributions include the integration of the WA Independent Market Operator into AEMO as our Western Australian division, and more recently the creation of AEMO Services to take on the role of Consumer Trustee in the NSW Electricity Infrastructure Roadmap”.
Both roles will be internally filled on an interim basis, while comprehensive processes to find replacements are completed.
