Cochrane takes power reins

WA CONSOLIDATED Power chief operations officer John Cochrane has been promoted to CEO following the departure of founding CEO Charles Abner.

WACP was formed to act as an electricity reseller in the 1 megawatt to 5MW market which was deregulated on January 1.

The company buys power from alternate generators such as Alcoa and sells it to customers within the power consumption range. Its biggest customer is CocaCola Amatil.

Mr Abner left WACP about four weeks ago to pursue other interests and Mr Cochrane was asked by the board to take on the top job.

Mr Abner has not yet revealed his plans for the future.
