New appointment to Export Finance Australia Board

  • Media release

I am pleased to announce the appointment of Ms Debra Hazelton as Chair of the Board of Export Finance Australia (EFA).

Ms Hazelton is highly qualified and brings a wealth of experience from over 30 years working in global financial services and her current role as Chair of AMP Limited. Her appointment comes at a time when EFA is playing an increasingly important role in supporting Australian exporters and boosting investment in our region, and her skills will support EFA in achieving its goals of growing our critical minerals sector, investing in infrastructure in the Indo-pacific region, and supporting our transition to net-zero.

Ms Hazelton is the first woman to serve as the EFA Board Chair, continuing the Australian Government’s demonstrated commitment to increasing diversity on Commonwealth Boards.

I thank outgoing Chair Mr James M Millar AM for his service to the EFA Board over the last nine years.
