Prime Minister Gillard has announced a major shakeup at the highest level of the public service, the dep secs.
- — Don Russell will replace Mark Paterson at the Department of Innovation, Industry, Science and Research.
— Robyn Kruk AM will return to work as the Chief Executive Officer designate of the National Mental Health Commission.
— Paul Grimes will be the Secretary of the Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities.
— Ken Henry has been appointed a special adviser to the Prime Minister.
On a side note it’s one of the worst written media releases I’ve ever seen out of any Prime Minister’s Office.
