Tourism WA board shake-up

The McGowan government’s shake-up of the public sector has triggered unexpected departures from key agencies, with road safety commissioner Kim Papalia resigning and three Tourism WA board members following chairman Peter Prendiville out the door.

Mr Prendiville resigned on Friday, and Howard Cearns (deputy chairman), Alistair Donald and Neville Poelina have also left the 10-member board.

The government announced today that existing board member Nathan Harding would be the new chairman.
