Momentum welcomes new Managing Director
Mr Geason brings with him a wealth of experience from his time at Telstra Corporation, where he was part of the leadership team and led Telstra’s Enterprise, Government and Wholesale divisions. Mr Geason also has experience working in startup and early-stage technology companies.
"Paul is very excited about the opportunity to lead Momentum Energy," said Evangelista Albertini, Acting CEO of Hydro Tasmania, Momentum’s parent company. "The business is an important part of the Hydro Tasmania group and we are delighted to have someone of Paul’s calibre at the helm."
"Momentum has a great story to tell: it’s backed by Hydro Tasmania, Australia's largest generator of renewable energy, with over 100 years of experience." Mr Albertini said.
The appointment of Mr Geason comes as Momentum Energy readies itself to launch its gas retailing services to the Victorian market.
"The year ahead will be a truly exciting time for Momentum Energy and I am looking forward to every opportunity it brings," said Mr Geason. "I've always been passionate about customers, innovation and growth and those attributes are at the core of the business culture at Momentum Energy."
"Energy will continue to play a pivotal role in shaping Australia's future and I am honoured to have the opportunity to work with the teams here at Momentum Energy and Hydro Tasmania at such an important time," he said.
