Snowy Hydro has confirmed that Managing Director and CEO, Paul Broad, has offered his resignation, with the company now commencing a new process to identify new leadership.

In a statement, Snowy Hydro said that Broad has led organisational expansion and innovation, transforming Snowy Hydro into a dynamic and integrated energy business. Under his leadership, the first Snowy Hydro renewable energy procurement program began in 2018 and has grown to encompass 12 contracts with wind and solar projects totalling 1.3 gigawatts of energy generation. 

Roger Whitby, Chief Operating Officer, will now lead the organisation on an interim basis, with support from Broad to facilitate a smooth transition.
