As the authorised Australian distributor and service partner for GE Energy’s Jenbacher gas engine, Clarke Energy is dedicated to providing long-term, quality installations and service. This commitment to customer service and building long-lasting relationships has positioned Clarke Energy as the market leader for not only coal-gas applications in Australia but also remote embedded energy and tri/cogeneration applications.

Greg Columbus has been leading Clarke Energy as managing director for 10 years, and has seen the company grow from eight employees to 120. The CEO Magazine sat down with Greg to discuss the evolution of the energy industry and Clarke Energy’s role in its journey.

“It’s been a wonderful growth journey, and I think it would be the growth of the brand in the marketplace, gaining industry recognition, and successfully delivering the product safely, on time, on cost, and in good quality. It’s probably the overall quality and performance of the product and our service support areas which have been our most significant achievements.

I think that’s augmented by our strong culture, which focuses on doing what we say. That’s an achievement, because there are a lot of players in this industry who promise a lot and deliver short. We follow a mantra of doing what we say, and we have engaged with people to do that” states Greg.
