- Prime minister Malcolm Turnbull has appointed Steven Kennedy as the new secretary of the federal department of infrastructure and regional development (DIRD) as part of a shake-up of the top ranks of the Australian public service, replacing Mike Mrdak who has held the significant transport-related position for the past eight years.
- The automotive industry was quick to pay tribute to Mr Mrdak, who is one of Australia’s most senior public servants with almost 30 years’ experience – mostly in transport and infrastructure – and will now become secretary of the department of communications and the arts when the new five-year appointments become effective on September 18.
