KYLIE GALLASCH

General Manager Financial Services, Australian Rail Track Corporation

Kylie has been with ARTC for 17 years and currently holds the role of General Manager Financial Services within the Finance Division. This role is responsible for the delivery and analysis of financial management information across ARTC for reporting and decision making. Kylie provides leadership and coordination in the strategic, administrative, planning, accounting and budgeting efforts of the company. In this role she has oversight of board, executive and management reporting, budgeting and forecasting activities across the company, financial management of the major capital works and commercial business and expansionary opportunity analysis.

During her career at ARTC, Kylie has held other key management roles and played a major part in delivering significant changes to the organisation. This includes the take up of the NSW rail network in 2004, growing the business from around 100 staff to 1800 in approximately 3 months and more recently in 2011, as the General Manager Commercial in the Strategy & Growth division, managing the commercial transition of ARTC’s Hunter Valley Coal Network to a new commercial regulatory regime with the ACCC. These roles demonstrate her skills both from a commercial perspective as well as a leader on the commercial front, developing new long term contracts and working with her team to build processes and systems to efficiently deliver the requirements of the customer, the regulator and the ARTC corporate plan.

This experience, coupled with over 10 years in the banking and finance sector, has enabled Kylie to give back to both the ARTC community through leadership and mentoring and the South Australian community at large.

In 2014 Kylie joined the Mary MacKillop Care SA Ltd board of directors and currently serves as a Director and Company Secretary. Her role is to provide strategic leadership and financial management expertise to enable South Australians, and those with disabilities, to have access to the care they need to help them maintain their personal self-esteem and quality of life.
