Hydro Tasmania’s Chairman, Grant Every-Burns, has announced that Evangelista Albertini has been appointed to the role of Chief Executive Officer for the company, replacing outgoing CEO Steve Davy.

Albertini was most recently the Chief Asset Management and Investment Officer at Hydro Tasmania, and prior to that served as the Chief Operations Officer for nine years with responsibility for the operation, maintenance and capital enhancement of Hydro Tasmania’s extensive power generation infrastructure portfolio.   

He began his career with Hydro Tasmania in 1982 as a trainee technical officer and design draughtsman. He departed in 1988 but returned to Hydro Tasmania in 2002 as Group Manager for Power Engineering Hydro Consulting (now Entura). 

Albertini will commence as CEO on 5 September, taking over from Steve Davy who announced he would not seek reappointment to the position earlier this year. Every-Burns, on behalf of the Hydro Tasmania Board, thanked Davy for the leadership he brought to the businessover the previous seven years as CEO and for his contribution to Hydro Tasmania over the past 15 years during which time he was part of a team that bought Hydro Tasmania into the National Electricity Market.  More recently he has been a driving force for the Battery of the Nation vision to expand Tasmania’s renewable contribution to the nation in future years.
