Corinne Ong has been appointed as chief executive for ENGIE Services Australia & New Zealand after 11 years with the company.
ENGIE was formerly known as GDF Suez, though implemented a rebrand this year.
Ms Ong joined the French multinational GDF Suez in 2004 as its general counsel for the Australian energy business. In 2013 she was promoted to head legal for the Asia Pacific Energy International business. In November 2014, she was appointed head of strategy, development and regulation.
ENGIE has been growing its energy services business in Australia, which it operates through its subsidiary Cofely. Cofely recently acquired energy services company DESA Australia.
ENGIE is also the owner of the Hazelwood power plant and brown coal mine, where a fire broke out in 2014, putting residents of nearby Morwell in danger.
It was criticised in an inquiry for not acting on the foreseeable fire risk.
