Cruise Line CEO Now Safe Work Australia Chair

Ann Sherry has been appointed to replace Tom Phillips by the country's minister for employment and workplace relations.

Ann Sherry, chief executive officer of Carnival Australia, part of star-crossed Carnival Corporation & plc, is taking over the top spot at Safe Work Australia. Bill Shorten, Australia's minister for employment and workplace relations, recently appointed her to replace Tom Phillips, who had chaired the agency since its founding.

Sherry was appointed for a three-year term. "Ann brings a wealth of experience to the work health and safety and worker's compensation table through many years as a leader in Australian business," Shorten said.

Before she joined Carnival Australia, the country's largest cruise line, Sherry worked for Westpac, one of the country's leading banks, in positions that included CEO, Westpac New Zealand; CEO of the Bank of Melbourne; and Group Executive, People and Performance. She previously was First Assistant Secretary of the Office of the Status of Women in Canberra, advising the prime minister on policies and programs to improve the status of women and was Australia's representative to the United Nations forums on human rights and women's rights.

Safe Work Australia is a national policy-setting body with the mission of improving workers' health and safety and workers' compensation arrangements across Australia.
