Australian Petroleum Production & Exploration Association (APPEA) has appointed a new chief executive.

APPEA chairman Zoe Yujnovich said that Andrew McConville was named as the new chief executive of the association.

McConville’s appointment follows the resignation of Malcolm Roberts, who was the chief executive since June 2015. He will start his role in late March which will include a transition period with Roberts.

He has international experience in advocacy, policy, and issues management after most recently working in Switzerland as the global head of external affairs and communications for Syngenta.

McConville also worked in senior corporate affairs and management roles in the banking and food sectors as well as being a former policy adviser to the Victorian Government.

Regarding the appointment, Yujnovich said, “If the oil and gas industry is to continue to play a critical role in supplying Australian and export customers with energy while supporting the economy through the energy transition, we require strong and pragmatic leadership.
