Interim changes at Entura

April 2, 2024

Entura has announced changes within its management team, with long-standing Managing Director, Tammy Chu now appointed as Hydro Tasmania’s Interim Executive General Manager Construction and Dr Amanda Ashworth becoming Acting Managing Director for Entura. 

Tammy’s new role will see her leading the project delivery of Hydro Tasmania’s Battery of the Nation program as it progresses through crucial planning and design phases. “I’m excited to take on this new challenge, and after 13 years as Managing Director at Entura, I know I’ll miss working alongside the amazing team of people that drives the success of the business.  However, I’m not far away, and with the work involved with Battery of the Nation, I know I can rely on the Entura team to support and partner with us for success,” says Tammy.

Hydro Tasmania CEO, Ian Brooksbank said “this is a new role that recognises the critical importance of Battery of the Nation projects in our Purpose, Vision and Strategy with the next stage requiring even greater focus, strategic planning and coordination. Tammy is eminently qualified for the job.”  

Amanda has been with the business for 23 years and over that time has held a number of roles across Entura and been involved in project direction of major engineering projects. For the past five years she’s been part of Entura’s Executive Team, most recently as Director of Strategy, Sales and Commercial. She is well known for creating and driving the Entura clean energy and water institute (ECEWI) since its launch in 2012, which has delivered training to Entura’s clients nationally and internationally. Through ECEWI and other connections, Amanda has maintained a significant international profile across the Indo-Pacific. 

Of the appointment of Amanda, Ian commented “It’s fair to say that Amanda knows our business inside out and her contribution is significant across Entura’s strategic and operational frameworks and procedures.” 

The interim and acting roles are currently planned to end in December 2024.
