Anthony Kannis - Project Director, METRONET

Anthony was appointed Project Director of METRONET in June last year. His role is to lead his team, which consists of officers from the Departments of Transport; Planning, Lands and Heritage; and Communities, Public Transport Authority, LandCorp and Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority.

Following a significant period of working in a number of State Government central agencies, mainly in infrastructure investment, Anthony joined WA Treasury in January 1996. Here he provided strategic advice to the Government on infrastructure prioritisation and investment, in addition to the general resourcing requirements of public sector agencies. He was also instrumental in establishing and operating the Public Private Partnerships Support Unit which, in partnership with the Office of Strategic Projects, progressed a number of major projects.

Anthony was appointed to the Board of Infrastructure Australia in May 2008 and was Deputy Chairman of the Western Australian Treasury Corporation from April 2009 until May 2013.  He was also a member of the WA Planning Commission’s Infrastructure Coordinating Committee.

In October 2013, Anthony was appointed WA Police Executive Director to lead the agency’s corporate-related functions. During this time he was a significant contributor to the Frontline 2020 reform program which, amongst a number of operational changes, made significant improvements to WA Police’s corporate operations, including governance, introducing a centralised business management model and attracting a number of highly skilled public servants.
