Deputy prime minister Michael McCormack has announced a new addition to the board of the Australian Rail Track Corporation, and has reappointed three existing members for new terms.

Former KPMG national managing partner for taxation Rosheen Garnon will join the board of the national track owner.

In a joint statement with finance minister Mathias Cormann, McCormack said Garnon would bring 29 valuable years of financial and accounting experience to the board.

“Her global experience in infrastructure, transport and taxation issues will make her a valuable addition to the ARTC board,” the statement said.

McCormack and Cormann also said existing board members Vincent Graham, Chris Barlow and Gillian Brown had been reappointed.

“Mr Graham’s reappointment enables the ARTC to continue to utilise his significant industry experience as a chief executive across energy and rail infrastructure, including as managing director of the National Rail Corporation and CEO of RailCorp NSW,” the ministers said.

“Mr Barlow’s extensive infrastructure knowledge includes over 30 years of experience in the transport and infrastructure industries which ensures the ARTC Board has a breadth of knowledge to deliver Inland Rail.

“As a leading corporate and project financing lawyer, Ms Brown brings 25 years of experience in finance, infrastructure, energy and resources, and debt capital markets transactions, to the ARTC Board.”
