The Western Australian Government has approved the appointment of Alan Mulgrew as the new Chairman of the Western Power Board.


State Energy Minister Peter Collier welcomed Mr Mulgrew’s appointment, acknowledging Mr Mulgrew’s vast experience in a multitude of major industry sectors, including energy; major infrastructure; and transport and construction.


“Mr Mulgrew offers substantial levels of expertise across a range of areas that will be major assets as Western Power continues the significant process of change undertaken since the Liberal-National Government took office,” Mr Collier said.

“He is a natural leader who has demonstrated an intelligent, commonsense approach to business, in Australia and overseas, across many senior board and corporate positions."

Mr Mulgrew’s appointment coincides with the appointment of new CEO Paul Italiano.
