Rebecca Andrews will begin as CEO of Manufacturing Skills Queensland next month.
According to a statement from the Queensland government on Thursday, MSQ will play a “role in identifying the training and skills required by manufacturers and employees” and that Andrew “will lead the organisation in building skills and capability to support the future of manufacturing in Queensland.”
MSQ is a new independent company allocated $16.5 million over three years in state government funding. It held its first meeting in late-2022.
“Sharing my experience and vision for leading MSQ’s strategic plans and programs, I will ensure we continue to attract, upskill, reskill to grow a sustainable, inclusive and diverse workforce and business community that thrives today, and in the future,” said Andrew.
Andrews’s previous roles include positions as Australian Industry Group Queensland State Head; Deputy Director-General, Small Business at the Department of Employment, Small Business, and Training; and various boards and advisory groups, including the Ministerial Manufacturing Council.
