Ampol has announced its Chief Commercial Officer, Louise Warner, has resigned to take up an executive position with Alimentation Couche-Tard.

Ms Warner will serve a six-month ‘gardening leave’ period before relocating to North America for the role.

It comes months after ATD shelved a proposed $8.8 billion takeover bid for Ampol (then Caltex) amid the uncertainty and significant financial impacts of the pandemic.

Ampol has also announced current General Manager, Trading and Shipping, Brent Merrick, has been promoted to Executive General Manager, Commercial and will relocate from Singapore to Sydney. He will also have responsibility for Trading and Shipping, B2B Sales, Supply and Commercial Optimisation and take over evolving future energy solutions for customers.

Andrew Brewer will also rejoin Ampol in December this year, and will oversee operations and optimisation of Ampol’s Fuels and Infrastructure assets. And Executive General Manager, Retail, Brand and Culture, Joanne Taylor, will take on expanded responsibilities, including the management of the Gull New Zealand and the Ampol rebrand.

CEO and Managing Director Matthew Halliday said the appointments would ensure Ampol continued to deliver for shareholders.

“Brent has almost 20 years’ experience in various roles at Ampol and most recently has been integral to our international growth strategy and the development of the trading and shipping business,” Mr Halliday said.

“Brent has worked across most parts of the Fuels and Infrastructure business, including refining, B2B, supply and trading. Andrew also has a long history with our business, spanning 17 years and his significant global experience will ensure we continue to run our Fuels and Infrastructure business successfully.”
