QIC Global Infrastructure has announced a number of changes to its South Australian advisory team, which will see Laura Reed take over as chair of Epic Energy South Australia.
Ms Reed replaces John Rickus, who will commence as a senior consultant representing QIC Global Infrastructure in South Australia, the firm said.
“This is an important time in both the Epic Energy business and QIC’s Global Infrastructure business,” said QIC Global Infrastructure head Ross Israel.
“The changes we are announcing today have been undertaken to maintain a strong independent board at Epic Energy, and to focus skilled resources in other key areas.”
Mr Israel said the firm was “pleased” with the changes and that both Ms Reed and Mr Rickus would reinforce the business’ operations.
“Laura Reed has been a non-executive director at Epic and chair of the Audit and Risk Committee for the past four years. She previously held roles as CEO of Spark Infrastructure and as CFO of Envestra, and brings significant experience of both gas and energy markets to the role of chair,” he said.
“John Rickus, having previously been a non-executive director on Brisbane and Adelaide airports boards, chairman of Flinders Ports, and chairman of Epic Energy for the past four years, brings significant infrastructure and local market knowledge to further strengthen QIC’s position in the South Australian market.”
