The shareholding Ministers of the Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC) have appointed an Acting Chair for a period of three months.

Dr Kerry Schott has been appointed as Acting Chair of ARTC, following Mr Peter Duncan announcing a three month leave of absence to serve as acting Secretary of the Department of the Premier and Cabinet in New South Wales.

Dr Schott recently concluded a significant review of Inland Rail and is perfectly placed to oversee the initial implementation of the recommendations she made, and the government accepted. 

During her three-month tenure, Dr Schott will focus on recruiting a permanent CEO of Inland Rail and addressing the governance and board capability shortcomings her report outlined.

The ARTC board said it is grateful to Dr Schott for agreeing to undertake this important task and are looking forward to welcoming Mr Duncan back to the role later in 2023.
