Global CCS Institute CEO to Step Down

27th January 2021

MELBOURNE – The Chairman of the Board of the Global CCS Institute, Mr Philip Bainbridge, today announced that the Chief Executive Officer, Mr Brad Page, has advised the Board that he wishes to step back from full time employment and will be leaving the Institute during the 3rd quarter of 2021, having by that time led the company for a decade.

Mr Bainbridge said “Brad will be leaving the Institute after 10 years of dedication to advancing the deployment of CCS around the world. He has taken the Institute from a well-funded start-up company through some challenging times to now being widely acknowledged as the world’s foremost body on CCS. He will leave the Institute in good shape and with a bright outlook”.

“The Board is grateful for Brad’s long service and achievement. The Board is also appreciative of Brad’s advance notice and desire for a smooth transition to his successor”.

Mr Page said “It has been an honour and privilege to have led the Institute for almost 10 years. I thank Phil and the Board for their unwavering support and encouragement; it has been a real pleasure to work with them and to have had the benefit of their individual and collective wisdom and guidance. I am looking forward to working with the Board over the coming months as it finds the next CEO and to ease the way for my successor to take the helm at this vibrant company”.

Russell Reynolds has been tasked with leading a global search for a new CEO of the Institute.
