New JAS-ANZ CEO Appointed


Date: 12 November 2007


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). Previously he has held a range of positions in government and industry associations with a focus on the role that technical infrastructure organisations such as JAS-ANZ play in promoting trade and delivering economic benefit.

In announcing the appointment JAS-ANZ Chairman David Peaston commented; “Dr Galloway will bring a unique blend of technical conformity assessment knowledge and government and industry liaison skills to JAS-ANZ.”

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

Dr Galloway received his PhD in history at the University of Adelaide, and has a Master of Government and Commercial Law (Australian National University).

Dr Galloway will commence with JAS-ANZ on 21 November 2007.
