The Chief Executive of the Australian Energy Market Commission (AEMC), Anne Parson, has resigned.
The Australian Energy Council (AEC) announced Ms Pearson’s resignation and congratulated her for her outstanding stewardship.
The AEC’s Chief Executive, Sarah McNamara, said that Ms Pearson had stepped into the Chief Executive role at the AEMC at a time of unprecedented change.
“Anne oversaw an intensive work program of reform at the commission. Her deep experience and understanding of energy markets has been critical to the management of the challenges of the energy market transition,” Ms McNamara said.
“The industry thanks Anne for guiding the AEMC’s thoughtful approach to various market rule changes in an environment of competing demands.
“Anne’s skill and genuine professionalism will be missed. We wish Anne well for the future.”
