Energetics is proud to announce that Executive Director and Chief Operating Officer (COO), Dr Mary Stewart has won in the category of ‘Emerging female leader in the private sector’. This category recognises “the...leader …who can best demonstrate growth, disruption and inclusivity in her field during the 12 months from July 1 2016”. 

Mary’s win acknowledges her three critical leadership roles: COO of Australia’s leading energy and sustainability management consultancy; an expert who is taking her knowledge to the global stage as Australia’s first business observer to the UNFCCC’s Technology Executive Committee; and as a passionate advocate for flexible work arrangements for all Energetics’ staff.

Judges’ comments

“Mary demonstrates an incredible clarity of vision and purpose for her team, her company and our country. She has an unwavering determination to create a sustainable future – for her people, her clients and the cities we all live and work in. Mary leads her team with integrity, transparency and pragmatism, while pushing the boundaries of her industry to drive investment in innovation and disrupt the traditional models of work which not only limit flexibility but also contribute to global emissions. This motorbike riding, rugby playing, chemical engineer-turned-executive director is truly a force of nature.”

Well done Mary! It’s great to see your passion for addressing climate change with solutions based on deep industry knowledge, technical insights and supportive working arrangements for our team of experts, being recognised as outstanding across such a broad group of business leaders.
