Craig Gillman has returned to the City Renewal Authority, appointed as the Authority’s new Chief Executive Officer following the resignation of outgoing Chief Executive Malcolm Snow earlier this year.

Mr Gillman has been an integral part of the City Renewal Authority since 2019, initially as Deputy CEO and later as acting CEO before his most recent stint as the Suburban Land Agency’s temporary CEO.

Mr Gillman brings extensive experience in both government and commercial sectors to the role. His track record includes steering the City Renewal Authority through challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic while successfully delivering key urban renewal projects such as City Walk improvements, Braddon and Dickson streetscape upgrades, and the Acton Waterfront boardwalk extension.

“The City Renewal Authority has a proven record of transforming Canberra’s urban spaces. I'm honoured to return and take the reins of this fantastic team,” Mr Gillman said.

“I look forward to working with the community, businesses, and our government colleagues to build upon what has already been achieved in creating places that are exciting to live, explore, and spend time in.

“We have a unique opportunity to positively impact the day-to-day lives of Canberrans and our visitors. I'm ready to work with the team to make this vision a reality.”

Mr. Gillman returns at an opportune and exciting time with several renewal projects underway, including the transformation of Garema Place and Dickson shops, as well as the continued development of Acton Waterfront.
