Rail Industry Safety and Standards Board chief executive officer Deborah Spring will step down from her role on August 29, and will resume her former role as RISSB’s Independent Chair.
She will be succeeded by industry leader Damien White, who will officially take up the CEO position on August 15.
David George, who currently serves as RISSB’s chair, will continue his association with the organisation, reverting to the role of independent director at the end of August.
George said Spring had provided strong leadership to RISSB through a successful growth phase, driving its contribution to the rail harmonisation and interoperability agenda in Australia.
“She has been relentless in her pursuit of operational and technical excellence and increasing RISSB’s contributions to industry and members in a range of areas,” he saidl.
During the past three years under Spring’s leadership, RISSB: • grew membership numbers by more than 150 per cent • took over stewardship of the Australian Level Crossing Assessment Model (ALCAM) • developed a framework for national harmonisation of rules • expanded its data and risk capabilities with a significant increase in the usage of the Australian Rail Risk Model (ARRM) • launched its culture tool, Culture Hub • increased its range of member engagement options including introducing MasterClass webinars • added online Learning Express courses to the RISSB training suite.
George said White was the “right person to lead RISSB on its next growth phase”.
“His track record, depth of experience and focus on transformative change makes him the ideal leader to deliver our new strategic plan and continue to build on the work of Deb and the rest of the RISSB team.”
White’s previous positions include CEO of TasRail, Executive General Manager of Inland Rail Integration for the Australian Rail Track Corporation, and most recently, Group Executive, Safety, Engineering and Technology for the ARTC.
