AGL Energy Limited has announced that Greg Conway, general manager of retail business, has finished his employment with the company.

Phil James has agreed to extend his service with AGL and resume the role of group general manager of retail energy while the company completes a number of critical phases of Project Phoenix (currently scheduled to complete in September 2008).

In due course, a search will be undertaken to find a replacement to lead AGL’s retail operations post-Phoenix implementation.

Mr James will have accountability as project sponsor for delivery of the business benefits associated with Project Phoenix, a project of which he was the chief architect. His role as project sponsor will be in addition to his broader responsibilities for managing the retail business.
