Three new directors have been appointed to the V/Line Corporation Board by the Victorian Government.
The new directors Liz Roadley, Tom Sargant and Kevin McLaine are practised in organisation financial, asset management, accounting, public transport operations, and strategic planning.
Minister for Public Transport, Melissa Horne, said, “Our three new Directors, Liz Roadley, Tom Sargant and Kevin McLaine are all well placed to help V/Line continue delivering the rail services regional Victorians need.”
The Victorian Government also announced a second term for existing Director Rachel Thomson who has more than 20 years’ experience working both nationally and internationally in senior roles across risk management and insurance.
The directors will join recently appointed Chair, Gabrielle Bell, and currently serving Deputy Chair, Craig Cook, in overseeing the organisation’s corporate governance.
They will work together with Chief Executive Officer, James Pinder, towards V/Line’s vision to deliver a modern, high-performing railway and coach service for all.
Key priorities include continuing the ongoing modernisation and cultural change within the organisation.
“The V/Line network is growing faster than ever before – central to making sure we can continue to deliver a more punctual, reliable and accessible regional rail system is a strong board of directors,” Ms Horne said.
The announcement comes as John Donovan and Kay Macaulay finish their tenure on the V/Line Board after four years.
The new appointments will continue through to 30 October 2022.
