John Hall retiring from Queensland Competition Authority

FOUNDING Queensland Competition Authority chief John Hall is retiring after 15 years at the helm.

After a 20-year career with the Queensland Treasury followed by time managing national law firm Allen Allen Hemsley's Queensland practice, now Allens, Mr Hall became devoted to advancing economic regulation and reform in this state.

QCA chairman Dr Malcolm Roberts said Mr Hall had established the authority as a leader in its field, growing it from an initial four staff in 1997 to more than 70 now.

Mr Hall said it was "time for new hands and new eyes to take up the challenge" as a more full-time board is about to be appointed.

This move comes a week after the authority came under fire from the Queensland Government over electricity price rises it has proposed.
