The Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) has announced an interim CEO to act in the position upon Audrey Zibelman’s departure in December 2020.
The AEMO Board appointed Nino Ficca to act as the company’s interim CEO.
AEMO Chairman, Drew Clarke, said, “The Board is well progressed in the search for a new CEO and is delighted that Mr Ficca has agreed to step into the CEO role on an interim basis, pending the appointment and commencement of a new CEO.
“Mr Ficca is currently a non-executive director of AEMO. An electrical engineer, he was previously managing director of AusNet Services and its predecessor businesses for 18 years.
“The demands on AEMO will not slow during the CEO transition.
“Nino’s broad experience in the energy sector will enable him to maintain momentum on the critical initiatives underway until a new CEO is appointed.
“While the Board is very sorry to see Audrey leave, under Nino’s guidance the important work of AEMO will continue smoothly.”
