AGD nabs Industry tech chief as new CIO

Boyley gets bigger remit.

Department of Industry and Science CIO Matthew Boyley will make the switch to the Attorney-General’s Department after winning the top IT job at the justice agency.

AGD joined the rush of Canberra entities advertising executive roles in July after the government lifted a two-year hiring freeze that had prevented them from hiring candidates outside the public service.

Joann Corcoran had been filling the role - which manages an $18 million, 80-person IT division - in an acting capacity for the previous two years.

Boyley’s appointment sees him come under a higher profile employer and a promotion from senior executive service band one to senior executive service band two.

At AGD’s he will oversee a handful of new clients - the IT needs of six Canberra arts agencies and the National Archives will be handed to the department as part of the Coalition's ‘smaller government’ efficiency drive.

Boyley has enjoyed a long and diverse IT management career in Canberra.

His career spans the Australian Federal Police, the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet and a range of environment portfolio agencies.

He had been CIO at the Department of Industry since June last year, following a promotion from general manager.
