About Grahame Searle
Throughout his time in the Western Australian public sector Grahame Searle has made an outstanding and ongoing contribution to improving the quality of public sector management and service delivery. In late 2008 Grahame was appointed Director General of the Department of Housing and Works, now the Department of Housing.

Since taking on the role Grahame has driven significant reform across the agency and the sector. This has including re-orienting the agency to be strategy driven, rather than program driven – and to see its role as facilitating affordable housing solutions rather than just delivering public housing.

Grahame has not only sought to promote public sector excellence within his own agencies but has also made a strong professional and personal commitment to fostering excellence across the public sector more broadly. Grahame was President of the IPAA WA Council from 2006-2008 and has contributed strongly to the development of the Institute into the strong association it is today.
