The Petroleum Exploration and Production Association (PEPANZ) has announced the appointment of John Carnegie as its new chief executive.

Carnegie is currently the executive director of the BusinessNZ Energy Council, with nearly three decades experience in public policy and energy markets, specialising in energy, climate change and resource management policy.

He has previously held roles at New Zealand Treasury, the Ministry for Economic Development, the electricity market operator (the Marketplace Company) and Genesis Energy.

“I look forward to being a strong, collaborative advocate for the industry,” says Carnegie. “The energy provided by natural gas and oil is critical to the prosperity and wellbeing of all New Zealanders. They have a major long-term role to play in the transition to a lower-emissions world.”

Carnegie will join the PEPANZ team later this year with the commencement date to be finalised soon. Current chief executive Cameron Madgwick finishes at PEPANZ in early October before taking up a new role as CEO of law firm GibsonSheat.
