Turbulent Times



Few corporate executives have seen more during their tenure than Grant King, MD of Origin Energy. But never has he faced a more challenging period than the last 12 months, as oil prices collapsed along with every other major commodity.

This is the third time King has been through a cycle of an oil price collapse, but he notes the previous cycles were demand driven while this one is supply driven.

In the latest segment of Perpetual’s Performance with Purpose series, The Australian’s Robert Gottliebsen and Stephen Bartholomeusz sat down with Grant King to ask him how he hopes to lead Origin out of some dark days for the energy industry.
