The Palaszczuk Government has appointed a new Chief Executive Officer at South Bank Corporation, who will bring decades of industry experience to the role of overseeing Brisbane’s iconic destination.
Minister for State Development, Manufacturing, Infrastructure and Planning Cameron Dick announced the appointment of Bill Delves to the position of CEO of South Bank Corporation following a full and open executive recruitment process.
“Bill brings over 30 years’ experience in accounting and consulting for private, corporate, not for profit and government entities as well as demonstrated business leadership from private start-ups to large global professional services entities such as KPMG and Ernst and Young Global,” Mr Dick said.
“He has held senior roles in professional services organisations across Australia, Asia Pacific and globally, including as Managing Partner, Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operating Officer and is an honorary professional fellow of the University of Wollongong.
“We’re confident Bill will provide inspiring leadership to South Bank Corporation with a balanced approach to generating growth and business development.”
South Bank Corporation Board Chair Dr Catherin Bull said Mr Delves has been interim CEO of the South Bank Corporation since tragic death of former CEO Jemina Dunn.
“Bill has demonstrated his capability over the past nine months leading South Bank Corporation through a difficult period,” Dr Bull said.
“Our much-loved former CEO Jemina, began the journey of steering South Bank Corporation through its next stage of evolution, making a substantial contribution to the precinct during her short tenure.
“Bill will continue this work as we take on the future after another strong year of growth.
“The Corporation is ready to deliver on its continuing vision to make Brisbane’s most popular parkland and cultural hub into the best urban precinct in the world.”
