29 June 2023

The Andrews Labor Government has appointed respected construction industry leader Rebecca Casson as an independent director of the Infrastructure Victoria board.

Infrastructure Victoria is an independent advisory body that prepares Victoria’s 30-year infrastructure strategy, advises the Government on specific infrastructure matters and publishes research on infrastructure-related issues.

Ms Casson brings a wealth of experience to the board. She is chair of the Building Industry Consultative Council, president of construction worker entitlement body Incolink and a director of the Victorian Skills Authority.

Ms Casson was previously CEO of Master Builders Victoria and was the first woman appointed to the role in the organisation’s 147-year history. She led Master Builders Victoria for four years including through positive transformation during the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Ms Casson was also previously CEO of the Committee for Geelong, a not-for-profit advocate body for the city and its long-term sustainability.

She has previously held a range of board and advisory positions throughout her career in both Australia and the United Kingdom.

Ms Casson joins the Infrastructure Victoria board after previous directors Ann Sherry AO and Professor Margaret Gardner AC concluded their terms as board members.
