The announcement, made by Queensland premier Annastacia Palaszczuk, comes as the government looks to cement its positioning as a centre for innovation, business and high-growth startups in the country.
“My Advance Queensland agenda isn’t just about bolstering our world-class research stocks, it’s about translating those ideas into commercial businesses,” Palaszczuk says in a statement.
“Mark Sowerby is well known in the investment community for identifying opportunities and seeing them commercialised.
“This is an outstanding appointment that will help Queensland attract more venture capital and turn ideas into businesses and jobs.”
