Statement on Departmental Secretary arrangements
7 September 2017
I would like to thank Ms Glenys Beauchamp PSM for her time and service as Secretary of the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science.
Glenys has worked tirelessly and assiduously to several Ministers and Assistant Ministers at a time of change in Australia’s industry and resources landscape.
Under Glenys’ leadership the Turnbull Government’s National Innovation and Science Agenda was developed, and she has overseen key developments in science such as establishing a long term vision for the Australian Synchrotron.
Glenys also advanced the Government’s Northern Australia and National Business Simplification initiatives.
I join with my colleagues in wishing Glenys well in the Health portfolio, and look forward to working with incoming Secretary Dr Heather Smith PSM.
