The Groundbreaking Business Leaders of the Year: Vital Players in Australia’s Energy Revolution

Must Read

Everyone in the business world has heard of Australia’s energy crisis. As this affects the entire country and its economy, the government has been trying to find a solution for years.

Our government must take the necessary steps to ensure policy and regulatory clarity to assist business leaders in supporting Australia’s successful energy transition.

Each year the Australian Financial Review Business People of the Year list celebrates those pioneers, motivators, and builders who have left an indelible footprint on Australia’s business world in the past 12 months.

Last year, Nick Molnar and Anthony Eisen of AfterPay were crowned Business People of the Year after Square’s massive $39 billion takeover. This success story symbolised the tech boom that had come to fruition before inflation returned and ultra-cheap money ended.

After a decade and a half of the dysfunctional political climate wars and policy chopping and changing, this year’s list acknowledges that business is getting on with transforming the carbon-intensive sources of Australia’s wealth, which is a huge positive for the nation’s growth and prosperity prospects in the coming decade.

After much deliberation by a panel of experienced business and finance professionals, Macquarie Bank chief executive Shemara Wikramanayake was unanimously chosen as Business Person of the Year for 2022.

“Shemara has been an instrumental leader in driving the energy revolution forward. Her vision and unwavering commitment to sustainability have helped make Macquarie one of Australia’s most innovative companies, and her continued focus on transformation is helping ensure that businesses of all sizes can thrive in this new era of sustainable growth,” said one panellist.

Shemara is just one of the many outstanding business leaders who are doing their part to ensure Australia’s energy revolution continues. With their tenacity and dedication, we do not doubt that this is just the beginning of a new era of prosperity for our country.​​​
