6 November 2017

Rose Webb, who has been appointed as the new Commissioner for NSW Fair Trading, has been described as an ‘exceptional individual’.

In addition to the Commissioner role, Ms Webb will lead the Department of Finance, Services and Innovation’s Better Regulation Division, which includes SafeWork NSW.

Minister for Better Regulation Matt Kean (pictured with Rose) said: “Rose is an exceptional individual with a wealth of knowledge and experience at the highest levels of government, both in Australia and overseas.

“Ms Webb shares my passion for putting consumers first, and cracking down on shonky operators across this state.

“Under her leadership, NSW Fair Trading will continue to be one of the most trusted and reliable government agencies in the country.”

In the last three years, Ms Webb had been working as Senior Executive Director and then Chief Executive Officer of Hong Kong’s Competition Commission.

She has also served in leadership roles at the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission; the then Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities; and the Australian Securities and Investments Commission.
