He said today that Infrastructure SA – set up to develop a 20-year state infrastructure strategy and five-year infrastructure plans – would hold its first meeting on February 5.
Previously announced chair Tony Shepherd will be joined on the board by business executive Carolyn Hewson, planner Amanda Price-McGregor and engineer Robert Rust. Three chief executives from the South Australian public sector have been appointed as ex officio members of the board, which Marshall says will provide independent advice to his Government.
“There was very strong interest in the Infrastructure SA board positions and the Government received expressions of interest from more than one hundred people, including many outstanding candidates,” Marshall said today.
Hewson has more than three decades of experience in business, primarily in the financial sector, and is a non-executive director of BHP.
Price-McGregor is the managing principal consultant and owner of Green Light Planning Solutions and has experience in “infrastructure planning, strategy development, project execution and development approvals in public and private sectors”.
Rust has had a long career working on major projects in the public and private sectors and was chief operating officer of Sydney’s huge WestConnex motorway project.
The board members will be joined by the chief executives of the Department of the Premier and Cabinet, Department of Treasury and Finance, and Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure.
