NEW CHAIR AND BOARD MEMBERS OF SYDNEY HARBOUR FEDERATION TRUST

Mr Joseph Carrozzi has been appointed Chair of the Sydney Harbour Federation Trust. Councillor Jessica Keen has been appointed local council representative, Mr Dave Sharma has been appointed a general member and Ms Josephine Cashman has been reappointed Indigenous representative.

The Sydney Harbour Federation Trust was established to protect and improve public access to former defence sites around Sydney Harbour and is governed by a board of eight trustees.

Mr Carrozzi has been on the board since 2016 and has extensive board experience including as Chair of the Italian Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Australia and Deputy Chair of the Greater Western Sydney Giants Football Club.

Councillor Keen was elected to the North Sydney Council in September 2017. She has extensive experience in private and public sector tourism organisations both in Australia and overseas. Councillor Keen’s skills and experience in the tourism sector will be an asset to the Trust.

Mr Sharma has more than 20 years of experience in diplomacy and national security and served as Australia’s Ambassador to Israel from 2013 to 2017.

Ms Cashman has been the Indigenous representative on the board since June 2015. She has more than two decades experience creating rapid business and socioeconomic growth in urban, regional and remote Indigenous communities across Australia.

Former Chair Mr Kevin McCann was the first Chair of the interim board established in 1999, inaugural Chair from 2001 to 2010 and Chair again from 2015 to 2018.

“I thank Mr McCann for his extraordinary contribution to and leadership of the Trust over almost two decades,” Minister Frydenberg said.

“The 250 volunteer cohort and broad community support for the Trust is a testament to Mr McCann’s inclusive leadership.

“Congratulations to Mr Carrozzi, Councillor Keen, Mr Sharma and Ms Cashman on their appointments.

“The Turnbull Government remains committed to managing these important heritage sites for Sydney and the nation and for the enjoyment of all Australians and visitors to our shores.”
