Allan was a loving husband to Nina, father to Christopher, respected colleague to many in the electricity sector, and friend to many.

Allan joined Hydro Tasmania in 2001. He was instrumental in the transition of the business into the National Electricity Market (NEM), setting up and leading the control room and trading teams for nearly two decades. As a consultant he then supported many projects and businesses, including design and approvals work for the proposed Marinus Link interconnector. His dedication, intellect and tireless approach added immense value to Tasmania and the NEM. 

Allan was a keen paddler and a member of the Little Howrah Paddle Group, and had much to contribute to our state and community;  his was a talented and productive life cut short by MND.  We raise these funds to celebrate his life, honour his memory, and to support others facing the challenges of MND.
