Fraine to lead Games coordination office

Brisbane’s 2032 Coordination Office, which will lead coordination delivery of the 2032 Olympics and Paralympics will be headed up by Department of Regional Development, Manufacturing and Water Director-General, Graham Fraine.

The appointment was announced today by Queensland Premier, Annastacia Palaszczuk.

Mr Fraine (pictured) has held a number of senior roles in the Queensland Government, including former Deputy Under-Treasurer.

In 2018, he was awarded the Public Service Medal for outstanding public service to social science research and policy development in Queensland. 

The Coordination Office will oversee many aspects of the games including infrastructure, but also First Nations, environment, legacy, and security.

Underpinning the coordinating body, is the Olympic and Paralympic Games Infrastructure Office, which will design and deliver the key venues, villages, and transport infrastructure.

A Leader’s Forum which includes Federal, State and Council representatives will work in tandem with the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games Organising Committee (OCOG). 

The structure will be reviewed after two years to ensure it continues to be the best model in the lead up to 2032, the Premier said.
