Board Appointments


The Government owns, on behalf of the Tasmanian community, a diverse portfolio of businesses, ranging in size and operating in a variety of commercial markets including the energy sector, port operations, transport, forestry and financial services. A list of Government businesses and their websites can be found here.

Directors of Government businesses are selected and appointed on the basis of their skills and experience, and the needs of the particular business. It is important that the appointment process is competency based, professional and transparent. A Director Selection Advisory Panel will advise the Government on suitably qualified candidates for all Government business director appointments.

Information on the Board appointment arrangements can be found here.

Criteria for appointment

Directors must possess relevant expertise, as well as appropriate personal attributes, in order to perform their duties and responsibilities to a high standard. Collectively, the expertise of each Board includes, but is not limited to:

  • relevant industry knowledge;
  • corporate governance;
  • finance and accounting;
  • an understanding of the Government context; and
  • strategic planning.

The ability to add value and contribute to Board decision-making and oversight are key considerations in the assessment of candidates for Board positions.
