Mr Carroll was also Director of Trade and Investment Queensland, Director of Building Queensland and Chair of Economic Development Queensland. He previously held the role of Chief Executive Officer of Queensland Water Infrastructure, where he delivered major water storage facilities across South East Queensland.
