“The ALC Board is delighted that Brad has taken up this key leadership role and is looking forward to working closely with him as we continue to support ALC’s members, broaden ALC’s impact and advocacy activities,” Davies said.
Williams has held senior corporate affairs and government relations roles at the Australian Renewable Energy Agency, ASX listed mining and metals company South32 and Japanese oil and gas producer INPEX.
