Rennie Partners has appointed Greg Ruthven as an Associate Director, marking the firm’s expansion into Western Australia. 

Based in Brisbane, Rennie Partners is a boutique consulting firm specialised in the strategic, regulatory and commercial aspects of energy transition, with a focus on the energy and infrastructure sectors. Since its launch earlier this year – founded in May this year by award-winning consultants and husband and wife duo Matt and Simone Rennie – the consultancy has gone from strength to strength, with its team now 11-strong. 

The latest to join the firm is Greg Ruthven, who crosses over from the Australian Energy Market Operator, where he worked for the past six years, latterly as the most senior regulatory officer in the Western Australia team. In the role, his responsibilities included rule changes and reviews, and broader NEM rule change processes including DER, integrating energy storage systems and leading the development of AEMO’s ‘Wholesale Market Response’ guideline.

Earlier in his career, Ruthven was at the WA Independent Market Operator for more than five years as a manager, and worked for more than a decade at oil & gas company Schlumberger. He holds a master’s degree in Electrical & Electronic Engineering from the University of Western Australia.

Based in Perth, Ruthven will advise clients across Australia and focus on expanding Rennie Partners’ footprint in Western Australia. “I’m excited for the opportunity to join a values-driven team, supporting clients through the energy transformation and the transition to a net-zero future,” he said.

Commenting on the hire, Simone Rennie said: “Welcoming Greg to our firm not only brings new senior regulatory capacity into Rennie Partners, it provides us with an increased ability to both focus on and invest in our clients based in Western Australia, part of the market which is experiencing significant change.”
