Former AGL Energy senior manager, ActewAGL Head of Retail and TransACT CEO & Chairman, Ivan Slavich, appointed as the new Energy Action CEO || Most recently head of management consultancy, TRIDENT Corporate Services, advising Federal and State Government departments and businesses || Focused on driving Energy Action’s growth as energy management becomes more critical given market volatility

Energy management technology and services company Energy Action Limited (ASX:EAX) (“Energy Action”) today announced the appointment of Ivan Slavich as Chief Executive Officer, effective 3 April 2017.

Canberra based senior executive Ivan Slavich is poised to take his considerable energy industry experience national. Ivan has 22 years experience in the energy, telecommunications and consulting sectors, having previously held senior executive positions with the AGL Energy Group including ActewAGL. Ivan was the Head of ActewAGL’s retail division where he had responsibility for all aspects of the utilities business across energy, water and communications and cemented its place as the pre-eminent energy retailer in the ACT and the Capital Region.

Ivan was then appointed as Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of privately owned communications business, TransACT Communications, substantially lifting the commercial performance of the business and was instrumental in the eventual sale of TransACT to iiNet and remained on iiNet’s executive team post-transaction.

Ivan’s most recent role was as Managing Director of TRIDENT Corporate Services, which specialises in providing management consulting services to Federal and State Government departments and small-to-medium businesses.

Incoming Energy Action CEO, Ivan Slavich, said: “Given the current volatility in the Australian energy market, it is even more important than ever for businesses and government departments to be considering their energy management strategies. Much has been said on the supply side in terms of a new gas peaking plant in SA, battery storage in SA by Tesla, an upgrade of the Snowy Hydro facility, but very little has been said in terms of the demand side equation. As a leading listed national energy advisory business, Energy Action is uniquely placed to play a key role in ensuring that customers are making the right decisions to manage their associated energy risks and opportunities. Demand side management, renewable energy generation projects and micro grid management as the Embedded Network Manager are key strengths for Energy Action.”

“Through my extensive experience operating in the National utilities market, and more recently advising Federal and State governments and businesses on strategy and business operations, Energy Action is well placed to grow its operations on a national basis with my leadership.

 “I will leverage my considerable experience in establishing and growing utilities businesses and advising governments and businesses on management strategies to ensure Energy Action is well placed to continue to grow its footprint in the Australian market and deliver improved returns to its shareholders. I look forward to leading the team to great success in the future.”

Commenting on the appointment, Energy Action Chairman, Murray Bleach, said, “The Board is delighted that Ivan has agreed to become our next Chief Executive. Ivan’s strong leadership and strategic capability, combined with his extensive energy industry and sales and marketing expertise make him the ideal person to lead the company through its next stage of growth. Ivan’s immediate focus will be on driving improved commercial outcomes.”
