A new chairman has been appointed to head up Queensland Rail, whose chairman will move across to oversee Tourism Queensland.
Queensland Rail chairman Stephen Gregg, who currently heads the Queensland Tourism Industry Council, will take over as Tourism Queensland chair next month.
Tourism Minister Jann Stuckey said Mr Gregg replaced Don Morris, who decided not to renew his term after five years.
The government today also announced the appointment of Glen Dawe as Queensland Rail chairman.
A statement issued by Transport Minister Scott Emerson said Mr Dawe had served as Manildra Group's rail transport national manager and the NSW Rail Infrastructure Corporation's general manager.
He also worked in senior roles in Queensland Rail years ago.
The announcement comes a week after the Newman government flagged major job cuts at Queensland Rail.
