Dr Kerry Schott AO to chair ARTC

Dr Kerry Schott AO has today been appointed Acting Chair of the Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC) for a period of three months, replacing Peter Duncan AM, who is taking a three-month leave of absence to serve as acting Secretary of the NSW Department of the Premier and Cabinet.

“It is a sign of how much Mr Duncan’s expertise is valued that he has been asked to take on this role, and we are sure his advice will be appreciated by Premier Minns,” said Minister for Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Local Government, Catherine King in a statement today.

“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 Minister confirmed.

“We are grateful to Dr Schott for agreeing to undertake this important task and we look forward to welcoming Mr Duncan back to the role later in the year,” she said.
