Kiersten Fishburn
Deputy Secretary, Cities & Active Transport
Transport for NSW

Kiersten Fishburn is the Deputy Secretary, Cities & Active Transport at Transport NSW. She brings a fresh energy to the role with ambitions to help our cities reach their full potential. Prior to joining Transport, Kiersten led the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE) as Secretary after almost two years as head of the Planning Delivery Unit (PDU). Under her leadership the PDU oversaw the acceleration of more than 600 complex planning matters, equating to over $57 billion in economic benefit. In addition, to her responsibilities as head of the PDU, Kiersten led DPIE’s Office of Local Government and Strategy and Innovation teams. Before joining DPIE, Kiersten led Liverpool City Council for almost four years as their Chief Executive Officer. Under her leadership, Liverpool was successfully positioned as Sydney's third CBD, seeing the largest capital investment in commercial development in its history, and securing generational opportunities from the Western Sydney City Deal. Her professional career has been devoted to public service, having also held leadership roles at City of Sydney, Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre and Accessible Arts (New South Wales’ peak arts and disability organisation).
