Renewable energy generator Hydro Tasmania has appointed Evangelista Albertini as its CEO.
Most recently the company’s chief asset management and investment officer, Albertini served as the chief operations officer for nine years prior to that.
Albertini began his career with Hydro Tasmania in 1982 as a trainee technical officer and design draughtsman, departing in 1988 to explore life and opportunities across Australia and internationally. He returned to the company in 2002.
Grant Every-Burns, Hydro Tasmania Chairman, said Albertini’s extensive experience in the hydropower industry stands him in good stead to lead Hydro Tasmania into the future as the organisation takes the next step to deliver on the Battery of the Nation opportunity.
Commenting on his new appointment, Albertini said, “Hydro Tasmania has been an integral part of our state for more than 100 years, many people have an association and fondness for the business with themselves, friends or family members having worked for ‘the Hydro’.”
“Since commencing here as a young teenager I have had a fascination with renewable energy and having stewardship over Tasmania’s iconic hydropower infrastructure is an enormous privilege.”
“The challenges are many and the opportunity to drive Hydro Tasmania’s next chapter is invigorating.”
“I am truly fortunate to lead a business of highly capable and passionate people who are committed to Hydro Tasmania continuing to lead Australia’s transition to a clean energy future.”
Albertini will take over from Steve Davy as CEO on 5th September.
