New JAS-ANZ CEO Appointed

Dr James Galloway has been appointed Chief Executive of the Joint Accreditation System of Australia and New Zealand (JAS-ANZ).

Dr Galloway was most recently Director, Industry and Government Liaison at the research organisation National ICT Australia (NICTA).

“This will be especially valuable in creating opportunities to extend the benefits accredited certification and inspection schemes offer to government, industry and the community.”
