The Australian Government has re-appointed one of nbn’s directors for another three years.
Dr Kerry Schott AO will serve her second term as a non-executive director of NBN Co Limited to ensure continuity for the company at a critical stage of the national broadband network rollout.
Over the next three years nbn is aiming to provide access to the network, or have construction underway, in areas covering more than nine million Australian homes and businesses.
The nbn board said it will “continue to benefit from Dr Schott’s professional expertise and extensive experience in infrastructure, investment and public policy.”
Recently reappointed as the Chair of the Board of Directors of the Moorebank Intermodal Company (MIC), Dr Schott also sits on the boards of Infrastructure Australia, NSW Treasury Corporation and the Whitlam Institute.
Dr Schott has also held senior executive roles as the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the NSW Commission of Audit, CEO of Sydney Water, Managing Director of Deutsche Bank and Executive Vice President of Bankers Trust Australia.
Dr Schott was made an Officer of the Order of Australia earlier this year for her “distinguished service to business and commerce through a range of public and private sector finance roles, to leadership in the delivery of government infrastructure projects, and to the community.”
