Director of Energy Safety to commence 23 March
Victoria’s new Director of Energy Safety, Marnie Williams commences at Energy Safe Victoria on Monday 23rd March.
A former executive at WorkSafe and Chair of the Taxi Services Directorate, Ms Williams takes up her position as ESV begins the transition to a commission. Instead of a single Director, statutory decisions will be made by a three person commission. Ms Williams is chair-designate of the Commission. The appointment of the remaining two Commissioners will be made by the Minister for Energy Lily D’Ambrosio.
Ms Williams is well placed to implement the reforms brought about by the Review of Victoria’s Electricity and Gas Network Safety Framework (the Grimes Review) and ensure ESV can meet the energy safety challenges of the future.
“I am honoured to be appointed Director of Energy Safety and look forward to leading a team of respected, accomplished professionals,” she said. “I am excited about supporting the organisation to transform the delivery of regulatory services to the sector.”
