The City Renewal Authority welcomes Craig Gillman on board as its new chief operating officer. Craig comes to the authority with a wealth of leadership, strategic, financial and organisational management experience.

Having previously worked at Transport for NSW where he was the executive director of the Program and Divisional Management Office, Infrastructure and Place Division, Craig is happy to be back in the capital.

“Canberra is a city with so much potential. I’m excited to be part of an organisation that is shaping the growth of the central parts of the city to meet the community’s needs now and into the future.”

Craig worked in Canberra at Ernst & Young before moving to Sydney in 2011.

Craig is excited to back and undertaking a role that delivers tangible outcomes to the community.

“I’m looking forward to working in an organisation that is people-focused and design-led and am keen to contribute to making places that are sustainable and achieve the Government’s ambition for our city.”

Craig has had a broad career and is looking forward to bringing his diverse experience, particularly in relation to financial management, governance and people, to the City Renewal Authority, but more importantly leveraging the capability in the team, community, business and strategic partners to drive city renewal, and deliver outstanding precincts and places.

“As chief operating officer I will be managing the day-to-day business operations of the authority to ensure the sustained performance of the organisation. I have an established record in governance, financial management and strategic policy development and implementation. I’m keen to work with the team at the authority as well as businesses and the wider community to ensure we strengthen our working relationships internally and externally.”

Craig will work closely with chief executive officer Malcolm Snow and the authority’s board to lead the transformation of the City Renewal Precinct.  You can contact Craig by emailing Craig.Gillman@act.gov.au or by phoning (02) 6205 2478.
