The NSW government has appointed Laurie Glanfield, the director genreal of the Department of Attorney General and Justice, as its new CIO, effective 29 July.
Glanfield is replacing Michael Coutts-Trotter who will move from his role as director general of the Department of Finance and Services (DHS) to director general of the Department of Family and Community Services (FACS).
The director general position at NSW DHS includes taking on the role of the state’s CIO.
The Premier of NSW, Barry O’Farrell, said in a statement that part of the reason for the change up in roles for both Glanfield and Coutts-Trotter is so they, as well as other senior public servants, can experience “a variety of senior leadership roles”.
Glanfield spent more than 20 years in his role as director general for the Department of Attorney General and Justice.
