Tasmanian energy retailer Aurora Energy has welcomed its new Chief Executive Officer CEO, Nigel Clark, set to replace outgoing CEO, Rebecca Kardos, in October.

With more than two decades of experience in the energy sector, including multiple senior financial, strategic, and operational roles, Mr Clark is best known for his tenure at Momentum Energy, where he served as Managing Director for four years until Hydro Tasmania’s 2007 takeover.

Before joining Aurora Energy, Mr Clark was Chief Operations Officer at New Zealand’s Genesis Energy, and previously served as Director for Boards including the Snowy Hydro Corporation and Energy Retailers Association of Australia.

Aurora Energy Chairperson, Mary O’Kane, welcomed Mr Clark ahead of his October start, signalling confidence in his extensive experience.

“With his extensive experience in the retail energy sector and his understanding of the Tasmanian market thanks to his time with Momentum, Nigel is the right person to lead the Aurora Energy team into the future,” Professor O’Kane said.

“Tasmanians expect their state-owned energy retailer to keep its costs to a minimum, while ensuring the products, services and support meet customer expectations. We have full confidence that Nigel will continue Rebecca Kardos’ outstanding work on both fronts.”

Mr Clark said he was excited for the opportunity to join Aurora.

“I am excited to be returning to the Australian energy market and serving the customers of Aurora and the broader Tasmanian community. I look forward to leading the business in its next phase of development in what continues to be a challenging, dynamic and evolving energy market,” he said.
