Trustpower

I have over 12 years' experience in the Electricity sector with time also spent in natural gas and telecommunication industries. I have worked across the value chain, spending time in retail, generation and transmission businesses.    My background is in strategic analysis and systems modelling, ranging from hydro-thermal optimisation to complex asset valuations.     I am a strong proponent of decarbonisation and sustainability. I also have a keen interest in understanding what makes people tick, both from the point of view of understanding my customers and bringing out the best in the people I work with. I see understanding how we think, and why we make certain decisions, key to achieving a low carbon, sustainable, economy.
