RISSB CEO Daly steps down

The Rail Industry Safety and Standards Board will soon start the search for its next CEO after it was announced Paul Daly has resigned after more than three years in the role.

The RISSB Board announced Daly’s resignation on June 6.

“Paul has made many contributions to RISSB,” the Board said in a statement. “Most notably renegotiating a five-year Memorandum of Understanding with the Federal and State Governments, launching the Australian Rail Risk Model (ARRM), developing the world’s first Rail Cyber Security Standard AS 7770, expanding RISSB’s training and events program, and streamlining RISSB’s internal processes to improve product delivery.”

The Board continued: “Paul leaves RISSB in a very strong position for future growth and we sincerely thank him for his contribution and leadership during his tenure as CEO.”

RISSB Chair Deb Spring will assume the role of Executive Chair and CEO of RISSB, until the recruitment of a new CEO takes place.

The announcement means both RISSB and the Australasian Railway Association will soon have new CEOs, after the ARA last week announced CEO Danny Broad would step down at the end of 2019. Broad has been endorsed as the ARA’s next Chairman, to replace Bob Herbert, who will also leave at the end of the year.
