Two Perth companies have announced board moves with political connections, with Austal director Jim McDowell leaving to take a powerful job with the South Australian government and IT company Cirrus Networks appointing Paul Everingham as a non-executive director.

Henderson-based Austal said in a statement today that Mr McDowell has accepted an offer to become the chief executive of Premier and Cabinet for the South Australian government.

The company said he would formally resign from the board in September.

Meanwhile, recently appointed Chamber of Minerals and Energy chief executive Paul Everingham was appointed as a non-executive director to Cirrus earlier this week.

Mr Everingham took over his new role as CME boss last month.

Mr Everingham replaces Patrick Glovac, who resigned to focus on other board roles.

“Paul brings to Cirrus an impressive depth of experience and knowledge across government and industry,” chairman Andrew Milner said.

“Paul served as a senior adviser within Treasury in Canberra before moving to WA as executive director of the WA Liberal Party.

“He more recently has held executive roles within digital media and brand strategy and in June was appointed as CEO of WA Chamber of Minerals and Energy.

“The board welcomes Paul to Cirrus and looks forward to his insight and contribution as we continue our growth as an innovative IT solutions company and market leader in enterprise managed services.”
