Robert Cole has been appointed chair of the board of Western Australia’s land information authority.
Mr. Cole is currently the chair of energy provider Synergy, and has 35 years experience as a lawyer in the public and private sectors. He is the former chair of the Southern Ports Authority.
Mr. Cole will take the place of outgoing chair Caroline de Mori as her three year term ends, who has been a member of Landgate’s board since 2015.
Lands minister Ben Wyatt welcomed Mr. Cole and thanked Ms. de Mori.
“Caroline played an important leadership role in pursuing Landgate’s digital transformation strategy and supporting the agency through the partial commercialisation of its automated land titling functions and related asset divestments. This resulted in a combined $1.6 billion return to the state last year,” he said.
“Rob’s leadership, legal and corporate governance skills will ensure he is able to support Landgate in achieving its statutory and commercial obligations as WA’s land information authority.”
