Meet Kate Webster, Chief Financial Officer at Jemena

In the People on the Move column, The Australian Pipeliner is tracking new appointments in Australia, New Zealand, Papuan New Guinea and the Pacific’s pipeline sector.

Jemena has announced the appointment of Kate Webster as the new Group Chief Financial Officer (CFO) following a competitive recruitment process.

Jemena Managing Director David Gillespie said that Webster brought a wealth of energy and utility sector experience to the role.

“We are thrilled to welcome Kate to the Jemena team and are confident she is a natural fit for our Group and will make a strong contribution to the business,” Gillespie said.

“Kate has an impressive understanding of not only the energy sector, but the challenges it faces – particularly in a financial context – as we work towards delivering on our net-zero ambitions.”

Gillespie said Webster had been working in the energy sector in a range of in-house and consulting roles since 2001, most recently as CFO and co-CFO for a number of Australian-based energy infrastructure businesses.

“Kate’s experience also includes international positions in the energy sector, notably in the United Kingdom,” Gillepsie said.
