New snowy hydro directors re-appointed

The Federal Government has announced the re-appointment of three directors to the Snowy Hydro Limited (SHL) Board of Directors.

David Knox (pictured) will continue as Chair for a further 18 months, and Sandra Dodds and Karen Moses will remain as Non-Executive Directors, maintaining both certainty and gender equity among SHL’s leadership.

Minister for Finance, Katy Gallagher said Mr Knox, Ms Dodds and Ms Moses bring with them extensive experience in the energy, infrastructure and construction industries.

“I congratulate Mr Knox, Ms Dodds and Ms Moses for the skills and expertise that they bring to this re-appointment and am pleased that the Snowy Hydro Board is maintaining gender equity in these important positions,” she said.

“I look forward to all members of the board continuing the vital work of Snowy Hydro as its role in powering Australia grows.”

Minister for Climate Change and Energy, Chris Bowen said the re-appointments came at a pivotal time for SHL, following last month’s announcement of a new Managing Director.

“The re-appointed members will be responsible for overseeing and guiding Dennis Barnes and his team to rectify and deliver Snowy 2.0 and the Kurri Kurri Hunter Power Project,” Minister Bowen said.

“Their expertise will contribute to Snowy Hydro’s role underpinning the reliability and affordability of the National Electricity Market and the transition to net zero by 2050.”

Mr Knox has served as Chair of SHL since 2020 and his term has been extended for a further 18 months to help with the transition of the incoming Managing Director.

Ms Dodds and Ms Moses have held their positions at SHL since 1 July 2019 and have both been extended for an additional three years to ensure continuity while the new Managing Director sets a new direction for the organisation.

Dennis Barnes began his five-year tenure as Managing Director and CEO of SHL on Wednesday 1 February.
