New Infrastructure NSW chief appointed

The NSW Government has today announced the appointment of Tom Gellibrand as the new Chief Executive of Infrastructure NSW.

NSW Treasurer, Daniel Mookhey said Mr Gellibrand brings more than 25 years of experience in strategic urban, transport and infrastructure planning and delivery at the state and local government level to the position.

“Mr Gellibrand brings significant experience in leading organisations, across planning, transport, built infrastructure and professional services,” said Mr Mookhey.

“His appointment sets up NSW for success in making the right decisions on infrastructure projects which will provide enormous benefits for the people of this state.”

Mr Gellibrand has spent the past four years as head of projects at Infrastructure NSW and held several senior executive roles including acting chief executive of Sydney Metro, deputy program director at Sydney Metro, deputy project director of North West Rail Link, and deputy director general at the NSW Department of Planning.

His work has involved the coordination of the private and public sectors in the delivery of major infrastructure projects, the development of land and the provision of urban services.

“This is an exciting time for Infrastructure NSW as we continue delivering a sustainable infrastructure legacy for our state,” said Mr Gellibrand.

“It’s a privilege to lead the organisation and support the government in addressing the challenging fiscal environment, transforming our electricity system and building more diverse and affordable places for people to live.”

Infrastructure NSW provides expert independent advice to the NSW Government on the identification and prioritisation of critical public infrastructure. This includes oversight and assurance of the state’s infrastructure pipeline and precinct delivery.
