Industry super fund Energy Super has appointed a new Chairman after director Bob Henricks departed from the role after almost 20 years.
Deputy chair Mark Williamson will take on the role as the new chairman, while director Scott Wilson will be the new deputy chair.
Williamson has been on the boards of many Australian companies including Stanwell Corporation and CS Energy. He has been the Energy Super director for three years.
He has held senior executive roles in the electricity, telecommunications and airlines industries in Australia and overseas.
Henricks was first appointed as director and the chair of ESIS(Q) in May 1995. He was involved in the merger of industry super funds ESI Super and SPEC Super in April 2011.
"After two decades, I feel the time is right to step down from the role of Chairperson. I look forward to continuing to work with the Energy Super board of directors under the experienced hand of Mark Williamson," he said
