MINISTER for finance Mathias Cormann and Minister for infrastructure Alan Tudge have jointly announced that the government has appointed Erin Flaherty as chair of the Moorebank Intermodal Company for a three-year term.

MIC is a wholly owned Australian government entity established to facilitate the development of an intermodal terminal at Moorebank – a nationally significant infrastructure project that will help Sydney manage the expected growth in freight moving through the city.

Ms Flaherty is an experienced board member who has served as a non-executive director on the MIC Board since March 2019. She has also been a board member of Future Fund since 2016 and is currently a non-executive director of Primewest Group Limited and a trustee of the Sydney Cricket and Sports Ground Trust.


“Ms Flaherty’s extensive experience in the rail and resources industries and her proven track record in managing large infrastructure projects, including Sydney Metro, Sydney Light Rail and North West Rail Link, make her well placed to lead MIC into the future,” the Ministers said.

The government thanked Dr Kerry Schott AO for her service as inaugural chair of MIC.

Since its establishment in 2012, Dr Schott has guided MIC, overseeing the development of the import-export terminal and the successful commencement of operations.
