Under Treasurer appointed acting CEO of Queensland Rail

FORMER Queensland Under Treasurer Helen Gluer has been appointed as acting CEO of Queensland Rail.

Acting Transport and Main Roads Minister Lawrence Springborg said Ms Gluer, who broke new ground as the first female Under Treasurer and is a former TransLink board member, will replace Glen Dawe who has stood down to attend to personal matters.

"Helen is one of the most respected senior managers in Queensland and I look forward to her continuing the improvements we've seen in Queensland Rail since coming to government," Mr Springborg said.

"From January 20 we will be fulfilling our promise to improve frequency with an additional 200 daily services.

"In a short space of time Queensland Rail has also gone from being one of the worst performing passenger networks in Australia to the best in terms of on-time running."

Queensland Rail chairman Michael Klug said Ms Gluer would fill the role for four months while a full-time CEO was found.

"I'd also like to thank Glen for his service, both as Queensland Rail chair from July 2012 to June 2013 and as CEO since August last year," Mr Klug said.
