Beach Energy Appoints Belinda Robinson to Its Board (Australia)


Effective immediately, Beach Energy Ltd announced that it has appointed an additional Independent Non-Executive Director, Ms Belinda Robinson, to its Board.

Ms Robinson is the outgoing Chief Executive of the Australian Petroleum Production & Exploration Association (APPEA), a role she has held since July 2005. In her time at APPEA, Ms Robinson has worked tirelessly to deliver the policy, regulatory and fiscal framework necessary to underpin the full growth potential of Australia’s oil and gas industry. She is a regular public speaker on energy policy and the promotion of Australia’s oil and gas industry. During her tenure, membership has more than doubled and the profile and influence of APPEA has led to it becoming one of Australia’s preeminent national industry bodies. Testament to this achievement has been the success of the most recent APPEA conference, held in Perth, which recorded the largest delegate attendance in its history.

Having held a number of senior and senior executive positions within the federal Government, including almost a decade with the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet, and as a former chief executive of the Australian Plantation Products & Paper Industry, Ms Robinson brings to the Beach Board extensive knowledge and experience in public policy, government processes, change management and corporate governance. She is a member of the Australian Institute of Company Directors, has completed the Company Director Diploma and is currently participating in the AICD’s ASX 200 Chairman’s Mentoring Program.

Ms Robinson will join the existing Board of Mr Robert Kennedy (Independent Non-Executive Chairman), Mr Glenn Davis (Independent Non-Executive Deputy Chairman), Mr Reg Nelson (Managing Director), Mr Neville Alley (Independent Non-Executive Director), Mr Franco Moretti (Independent Non-Executive Director) and Mr John Butler (Independent Non-Executive Director).
