Former senior public servant Emma Hogan, who announced last year she was quitting as secretary of the NSW Department of Customer Service, has taken up a new role with asset management consultants Ventia.
Ventia provides long-term operation, maintenance, and management of critical public and private assets and infrastructure across a range of industries.
Ms Hogan says after enjoying a ‘summer sabbatical’ with her family and getting her daughter started in Year 1, she has embarked on a new role as Group Executive Strategy and Corporate Affairs at Ventia.
“I’m really excited to be here, and have had a terrific first week getting to know my teammates, and starting to understand our business, our customers and the communities our services impact,” she says in a LinkedIn post.
Ventia CEO Dean Banks says Ms Hogan will drive business strategy, investor relations, client relations, community engagement, innovation and sustainability at the company.
“Em’s dynamic approach will help ensure Ventia continues to build on the success of our strategic pillars – client focus, innovation and sustainability – and drive our new age of growth,” Mr Banks said in a statement.
Ms Hogan served as NSW Public Service Commissioner between May 2018 and October 2019, when she was appointed to head Customer Service.
She’s also served as non-exectuvie director of the NSW Telco Authority and Destination NSW.
During her four years with Customer Service she presided over the department during a period of natural disasters and Covid-19.
