Adam Copp is announced as the Chief Executive Officer of Infrastructure Australia, the Commonwealth’s independent advisor on nationally significant infrastructure investment.

The Australian Government has today announced Adam Copp as the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Infrastructure Australia (IA), the Commonwealth’s independent adviser on nationally significant infrastructure investment.

Mr Copp has been acting in the role since 1 August 2022 and has now been appointed as the substantive CEO for a three-year term.

“The appointment of Mr Copp will enhance the critical role IA plays in delivering quality independent advice to the Australian Government on infrastructure that supports the economy, builds the nation, and provides for the future,” says Minister for Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Local Government Catherine King.

“The appointment of the CEO complements broader work underway to restore IA to its rightful place as an expert advisory body following the independent review of IA commissioned by the Government last year,” says Minister for Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Local Government Catherine King.

He has over 15 years’ experience in the Australian Government holding a range of policy, strategy and engagement roles across infrastructure, workplace relations and the Council of Australian Governments.

“Infrastructure Australia is very pleased to have Mr Copp continue to provide his strong leadership as the agency’s Chief Executive in a permanent capacity,” says Infrastructure Australia Interim Chair Gabrielle Trainor AO.

“At a time when the infrastructure sector in Australia is facing significant and complex challenges, Adam’s leadership will ensure Infrastructure Australia is positioned to provide the trusted, rigorous and expert independent advice the Australian Government needs to address these challenges and, in turn, drive better outcomes,” says Infrastructure Australia Interim Chair Gabrielle Trainor AO.

The CEO was appointed by the IA Board after it undertook a publicly advertised and merit-based selection process.
