Engineers Australia has welcomed the appointment of Gillian Geraghty as the ACT Government’s New Chief Engineer. 

CEO Romilly Madew AO said Ms Geraghty is well placed to lead the territory’s engineering future.

“As Director-General of Major Projects Canberra and an Engineers Australia Fellow with decades’ experience working on complex infrastructure projects and community programs, Gillian Geraghty is the perfect successor to Adrian Piani.”

Ms Madew also praised the announcement of a new Board of Engineering Excellence which will provide engineering advice and advocacy directly to the ACT Government through Ms Gerahty’s office. 

“The creation of the Board of Engineering Excellence marks a significant step in the collaboration between the Government and the private sector. This partnership will enable us to offer forward-looking guidance on crucial matters and challenges related to engineering.”

The title of ACT Chief Engineer will remain within the ACT Government. 

Ms Geraghty’s appointment follows the resignation of Adrian Piani after almost five years as the Territory’s inaugural Chief Engineer. 

“Engineers Australia thanks Adrian for his many achievements over the past five years and we look forward to supporting Gillian in her new role and working together to achieve outstanding outcomes for the Territory and its community,” Ms Madew said.
