According to Crean, Hydro Tasmania had a profits of more than US$92 million the past two years under Adair and looks to double its revenue this year.

"I wish the business and its entire staff a very successful and prosperous future," Adair said.

The board has named Chief Commercial Officer Stephen Davy as acting CEO until a permanent replacement is selected. Hydro Tasmania the process could take up to two months to complete.
