ACCC petrol commissioner to step down

Petrol commissioner Joe Dimasi will leave his post next month. Resource-16

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission on Thursday announced Mr Dimasi would not seek to be reappointed as a commissioner with the consumer watchdog.

Dimasi was appointed to the commission in 2008 with a responsibility for keeping watch over the petrol industry.

ACCC chairman Rod Sims thanked Mr Dimasi for his role with the commission.

“Bringing his economic credentials to all his roles, Joe has, in particular, made a major contribution over nearly two decades to the ACCC’s work in promoting the economically efficient operation of and investment in monopoly infrastructure in Australia,” he said in a statement.

Prior to his appointment as an ACCC commissioner, Dimasi was the inaugural head of the ACCC’s regulatory division, a position he held from March 1996 to 2008.
