Managing Director - Momentum Energy

Momentum Energy Managing Director

Imagine an energy company that puts customers first. That provides great customer service from 100% Aussie-based humans. An energy company that ditches confusing discounts in favor of simple, competitive pricing (without lock-in contracts, exit fees or loyalty penalties). An energy company that supports renewables and cares about the planet; meet Momentum Energy.

With a 250 person workforce, it provides electricity to residential and commercial customers in Victoria, New South Wales, South Australia, Queensland and the ACT. It also has a retail electricity services offering to the Bass Strait Islands and a retail natural gas offering for Victorian customers.

Momentum Energy is seeking to appoint a Managing Director to lead the organisation through its existing transformation program and its next phase of strategic development. Reporting to the Chief Executive of Hydro Tasmania, the Managing Director will be accountable for the achievement of their customer growth targets, organisational improvements and creating an innovative, high-performance organisation focused on the customer. Other key aspects of the role will include maintaining financial sustainability and good governance, providing exceptional leadership and vision, and representing the business externally.

Candidates will need to be proven and accomplished as a Chief Executive or General Manager, with a successful history of leading cultural and business transformation in building high performance, customer-centric organisations. This experience may have been gained in utilities or other customer-facing enterprises of scale, complexity and competitiveness. An inspiring, encouraging and enabling model of leadership is required to build a collaborative executive team and engage the broader workforce to take organisational performance to a new level. Proven Board relationship management and stakeholder management skills are critical as is an understanding of regulated commercial entities.

Momentum Energy is owned by Hydro Tasmania, Australia's largest generator of renewable energy - generating hydro and wind power. Hydro Tasmania is passionate about diversity and inclusion and providing work experiences that enrich the lives of its people. It is owned by the State of Tasmania and has been at the forefront of renewable energy production for more than 100 years.
