Today I announce the appointment of Dr Martin Parkinson PSM as Secretary of the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet. Dr Parkinson will take up the position on 23 January 2016.

Dr Parkinson was Secretary of the Treasury between 2011 and 2014 and a Secretary of the former Department of Climate Change between 2007 and 2011. He has had an extensive and distinguished career as an economist at the national and international level as well as making a significant contribution to public administration in Australia at the highest levels.

I look forward to working with Dr Parkinson in his new role.
