Ampol announces new senior leadership appointment

Ampol has announced the appointment of Faith Taylor to the leadership team in the new position of Executive General Manager, Group General Counsel, Regulation and Company Secretary.

Taylor joined Ampol in January this year following a 30-year stint as an energy regulatory lawyer with Clayton Utz, including 11 years as a partner in its energy team.

She has also been part of the Institute of Bone and Joint Research in either a Board or Company Secretary role for more than a decade.

Ampol Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Matt Halliday said that Taylor will bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to the new role, advising on energy transition, renewables, and carbon initiatives across both the Government and corporate sectors.

“Faith has proven to be a fantastic asset for Ampol since joining the organisation at the beginning of the year and we look forward to her leadership and guidance of our legal and regulatory affairs team as we continue to navigate the energy transition,” says Halliday.

Taylor replaces Executive General Manager of Governance and Risk Michael Abbott who leaves Ampol’s leadership team after two years in the role.

“I want to thank Mike for his leadership and dedication to Ampol over the past two years. Mike has made a significant contribution to Ampol as the business navigated a period of vast transformation, including overseeing the legal team in their recent work on the Z Energy transaction,” Halliday added.

Taylor said she is honoured to step up into this role with Ampol at such an important juncture for the organisation.

“I’m looking forward to leading our legal and secretariat teams and leveraging my insights and experience in the energy sector to support the execution of Ampol’s current and ongoing energy transition initiatives,” she said.
