Aurora Energy has appointed Dr Richard Fletcher as its new CEO, replacing the outgoing chief executive Grady Cameron.
Dr Fletcher will take up the Dunedin-based role at the company in January next year after previously being a general manager at Powerco.
Aurora Energy chair Steve Thompson said company was delighted to secure the services of the "highly experienced executive."
“We are confident he is a leader who will build on Aurora Energy’s strong safety, people and customer focus,” he said.
Interim CEO Grady Cameron would continue in the role until the end of the year.
Dunedin City Council-owned Delta and Aurora Energy separated to two companies on July 1 of this year, each with its own chief executive.
The then Delta CEO Grady Cameron, chose not take up either of the new Delta and Aurora Energy roles after his position was made redundant.
Controversy surrounded Mr Cameron's exit after it was revelled he would receive a $980,000 exit package, which included his more than $560,000 salary.
