Long-time ACT public servant Bronwen Overton-Clarke calls time on career

One of the ACT’s longest-serving public servants will call time on her career in December after 31 years working for the territory government and its predecessor.

Bronwen Overton-Clarke, who has most recently been the territory’s public sector standards commissioner will retire at the start of December, to ultimately be replaced in that role by former federal Auditor-General Ian McPhee.

Mr McPhee, who last year reviewed the Land Development Agency’s governance structure in the wake of a damning audit, will be the territory’s new public sector standards commissioner.

Ms Overton-Clarke said she had worked across several roles in policy, service delivery and corporate areas in her lengthy ACT career.

She said among her favoured achievements during that time was ensuring the reuse of several closed schools into community use centres and delivering some 400 new public housing units after the global financial crisis.
