The Australian Gas and Infrastructure Group (AGIG) has appointed Craig de Laine as chief executive officer (CEO), replacing Ben Wilson as he returns to the United Kingdom.
De Laine has been with AGIG and its predecessor companies for more than 16 years.
He has had extensive experience across a range of key business functions — in particular, de Laine has been responsible for AGIG’s people, regulation, corporate affairs and business strategy.
De Laine has also been instrumental in AGIG’s hydrogen rollout in the business’s transition to a low carbon economy.
De Laine said it was a great privilege to be selected by the board to lead the company during such a critical time in its evolution.
He also paid tribute to exiting CEO Ben Wilson for his contributions to the company.
“Ben has made a considerable contribution to positioning AGIG as one of Australia’s leading gas infrastructure businesses. AGIG is well placed to continue to deliver for our customers and grow through the low carbon transition,” said de Laine.
“He has undoubtedly been a leader in putting AGIG at the forefront of helping the country move to a renewable gas future. The Board and the AGIG team wish Ben all the best for the next stage of his career in the UK.”
De Lain currently holds the position of executive general manager for customer and strategy.
He will commence his new role as CEO on 1 November.
