The Federal Government has made a new appointment to the Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC) Board, alongside the reappointment of three existing Board members.
Rosheen Garnon’s appointment was announced on 9 April.
Ms Garnon brings over 29 years of financial and accounting expertise to the ARTC Board, including as former National Managing Partner for Taxation at KPMG and her global experience in infrastructure, transport and taxation issues will make her a valuable addition to the ARTC Board.
Three existing Board members – Vincent Graham AM, Chris Barlow and Gillian Brown – were also reappointed.
ARTC hopes these appointments will ensure a strong and diverse leadership team to oversee the 8,500km ARTC rail network and guide construction of the 1,700km Melbourne to Brisbane Inland Rail.
Mr Graham’s reappointment enables the ARTC to continue to utilise his significant industry experience as a Chief Executive across energy and rail infrastructure, including as Managing Director of the National Rail Corporation and CEO of RailCorp NSW.
Mr Barlow’s extensive infrastructure knowledge includes over 30 years of experience in the transport and infrastructure industries which ensures the ARTC Board has a breadth of knowledge to deliver Inland Rail.
As a leading corporate and project financing lawyer, Ms Brown brings 25 years of experience in finance, infrastructure, energy and resources, and debt capital markets transactions, to the ARTC Board.
Federal Shareholder Ministers congratulated all appointees and look forward to continuing to work closely with the ARTC Board to expand and modernise Australia’s rail network.
