  • Cheryl Cartwright appointed to CASA Board commencing 17 April 2017
  • Appointment strengthens government engagement and governance experience

Ms Cheryl Cartwright will join the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) Board to further enhance the governance of Australia's aviation safety regulatory agency.

Federal Minister for Infrastructure and Transport Darren Chester welcomed Ms Cartwright's appointment and said her membership would bring strong governance experience to the Board.

“Ms Cartwright has ably demonstrated her skills throughout her time as CEO of the Australian Pipelines and Gas Association,” Mr Chester said.

“Ms Cartwright has been in that role for more than a decade, and she now brings her considerable government engagement, strategic planning and valuable communications experience to the CASA Board.

“The appointment of Ms Cartwright is fully consistent with CASA's governing legislation which stresses the importance of an appropriate balance of professional expertise on the Board and will complement the aviation experience of current Board members.”

CASA chairman Jeff Boyd welcomed Ms Cartwright's appointment to the CASA Board.

“She will bring a wealth of corporate experience, which will complement the skill sets of existing board members and I certainly look forward to working with her.”

Ms Cartwright's three-year term will commence from 17 April 2017.
