Former Green Building Council CEO takes up reins at Infrastructure Australia


Infrastructure Australia has announced the appointment of Romilly Madew as the group’s new Chief Executive Officer, replacing outgoing chief Philip Davies.

Ms Madew, who led the Green Building Council of Australia since 2006, is broadly regarded as one of the nation’s leading champions of sustainable building in Australia.

“Recognised around the world as a leader in the property and construction industry, Romilly is an experienced CEO with expertise in strategy, governance and policy development,” Infrastructure Australia’s Chair Julieanne Alroe said.

As Chief Executive of the Green Building Council of Australia, Ms Madew represented over 650 companies with a collective annual turnover of $40 billion and presided over the Green Star rating system, which has seen more than 2,250 projects certified across the country.

Ms Madew said she was honoured to begin a new chapter as Chief Executive of Infrastructure Australia as the organisation prepares to release two landmark documents.

“Infrastructure Australia has a critical role to play in helping governments prioritise projects and reforms that best serve our communities. I look forward to growing the organisation's focus on delivering better outcomes for individual users across transport, energy, telecommunications, water and social infrastructure,” Ms Madew said.

Ms Madew will begin her new role in April 2019.
