Metro Tasmania has appointed two new Directors to its Board – highly experienced Director and Chair of several large public utilities Jude Munro AO and the CEO of the Women’s Legal Service in Tasmania, Susan Fahey.

Metro Chairperson Lynn Mason said the new Directors brought significant experience and the right skillset to the Board.

“Their experience and expertise across a wide range of areas will benefit the Metro Board enormously,” she said.

Ms Munro, who worked for 10 years as the CEO of Brisbane City Council (BCC) managing a budget of $2.6 billion and 9000 employees, is a former Director of the Translink Transport Authority in Queensland.

During her tenure as BCC CEO and Translink Director, ferry and bus passenger numbers increased from 45 million to 72 million per year.

She is currently a Director of Uniting Care Queensland (the state’s largest NGO with a budget of $1.3 billion), Sun Central Maroochydore and Newcastle Airport.

Ms Fahey, a lawyer with extensive experience working at both a state and federal government level, is a well-recognised leader and advocate for social issues.

Since joining the Women’s Legal Service in Tasmania, the organisation has tripled in size, increasing the level and kind of assistance provided to women in the state.

Ms Fahey has collaborated on a number of significant law reforms across Australia, and is a regular contributor in local and national media on issues including family violence, legal and social policy and reproductive health.

Ms Munro and Ms Fahey will replace retiring Directors Geoffrey Hazell and Lynn Mason.

Current Director Michael Harris will replace Lynn Mason as Chairperson.
