Together with Michael Addison and Ben Guo, Simon co-founded Genex in 2014 and has been instrumental in its evolution from listing on the ASX in 2015 to a multi project renewable energy developer and operator with more than $1 billion of assets in operation and construction.
Simon's transition will enable him to focus on a number of other business opportunities while, at the same time, retaining his commitment to Genex with the Board still benefiting from his experience and knowledge of Genex as a co-founder and long standing director and shareholder.
Commenting on his transition, Chairman, Dr Ralph Craven said:
"I would like to thank Simon for his hard work and dedication in his role as an executive with Genex. I look forward to continuing to work with him as a Director of the Company. Simon will remain a shareholder and director of Genex and looks forward to continuing to contribute to the Company's strategic direction."
