Former Under Treasurer Helen Gluer will extend her role as CEO of Queensland Rail for a further one year, after accepting an offer from the board.
Transport and Main Roads Minister Scott Emerson said Ms Gluer was one of the most respected executives in the state and welcomed her on-going role leading the important reforms at Queensland Rail.
“It’s great news for Queenslanders that Helen has accepted the board’s offer to extend her time in charge of Queensland Rail for at least another year,” Mr Emerson said.
“During the past two years Queensland Rail has made significant improvement in key areas such as reliability and frequency with 1000 additional weekly services and some of the best on time running in its history.
“We recognise the need for on-going improvements for Queensland Rail to become the best performing railway in Australia.
“Helen has demonstrated her ability to guide the organisation through change with strong leadership.”
Ms Gluer said she was pleased to accept the role.
“I am hugely impressed by what I have seen so far and am excited to continue working toward more successes in the future,” she said.
The total remuneration package for the CEO contract is $700,000.
