She has a long history with Plenary having been the lead legal adviser on many successful projects including AgriBio Centre for AgriBioscience, Single LEAP 1 and 2, Western Roads Upgrade and Sydney Metro City and Southwest.
Following Emma’s recent retirement from the Allens partnership, she now runs her own executive coaching and leadership development business.
Chloé Brayne has replaced Jean-Étienne Leroux and joins Greg Lovell as one of two CDPQ-appointed directors.
As Investment Director for CDPQ in Australia, Chloé is responsible for CDPQ’s infrastructure investment and asset management activities across Australia and New Zealand, including as director for Plenary, Port of Brisbane, Sydney Metro and WestConnex.
Chloé has more than 13 years’ experience in infrastructure investing, mergers and acquisitions and asset governance, including at AustralianSuper where she led its investment in WestConnex 2 and sat on the boards of both Transurban Queensland and WestConnex.View profile
Plenary Chair John O’Rourke said Plenary was fortunate to have such high-calibre individuals join the board.
“These changes have added great depth and variety of perspectives to the board,” Mr O’Rourke said.
“Emma is regarded as a leading adviser on large scale infrastructure projects, and Chloé has a wealth of experience in governance, origination, deal execution and asset management.
“The board looks forward to the experience, independent thinking and diverse perspectives Emma and Chloe bring as we continue our exciting growth.”
Ms Warren said she was delighted to be appointed to the board of a business she knows well, as it continues to expand.
“Plenary is recognised across industry as a success story and so it is an honour to join the board and make a contribution particularly as Plenary explores opportunities in new sectors and jurisdictions,” Ms Warren said.
Ms Brayne said she was excited to join the board, noting CDPQ shared Plenary’s passion for delivering quality infrastructure that makes a positive long-term contribution to communities.
“CDPQ has a longstanding relationship as an investor in many of Plenary’s projects and the business itself, and we look forward to an exciting future within and beyond our Australian and North American markets,” Ms Brayne said.
