The CSIRO today shared news of its Deputy Chief Executive, Craig Roy, and some changes largely to the Executive Team structure, to focus on our people, science, and customers.

After almost 15 years of service, Craig Roy has decided to leave the organisation.  Craig has made an invaluable contribution to the CSIRO, leading a large portfolio of responsibilities. Craig will remain at CSIRO in until mid-2018.

The DCE position will no longer exist and the Executive Team will be restructured to include two new Executives for Growth and People.  A new dedicated Chief Scientist will be appointed, to provide a science path to the highest levels of strategy direction setting and decision making.

To leverage CSIRO's unique digital plus science and industry 'domain' expertise, CSIRO's Data61 CEO – Adrian Turner – will be appointed as an ex-officio member to the Executive Team.

Recruitment for the new positions will begin shortly. There are no further changes.
