Australia Appoints New Deputy Chair At ASIC

The Treasurer announced the appointment of Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) Commissioner Sarah Court to the position of Deputy Chair at ASIC.

“This is a well-deserved reflection of the experience, expertise, and wisdom Sarah brings to the table,” ACCC Chair Rod Sims said.

“ASIC’s gain is very much our loss. Sarah was first appointed as an ACCC Commissioner in May 2008 and reappointed for an impressive third term in 2018. In her 13 years at the ACCC, Sarah has made an incredibly significant contribution to the agency and its work.

“We pass on our congratulations to Sarah in her new role.”

Ms Court has had a very wide involvement in the ACCC’s work and currently chairs the ACCC’s enforcement, compliance, consumer data right and legal committees and is a member of the merger review and competition exemptions committees.

“I will miss the ACCC, but I am very much looking forward to engaging with the opportunities at ASIC,” Ms Court said.
