Melbourne-based public sector consultancy Cube Group welcomes Kathryn Anderson as a partner. She becomes the firm’s fifth partner. 

Anderson brings more than three decades of experience in the Victorian and Queensland public services landscape to the consultancy. Most recently, she was the Deputy Secretary of Corporate Services at the Victorian Department of Environment, Land, Water & Planning (DELWP).

During her time at the department, Anderson developed its Community Charter to put the community at the centre of the department’s work and played a key role in the establishment of Solar Victoria, an entity that is responsible for the delivery of the Victorian Government’s Solar Homes Program – one of the most ambitious renewable energy programs in Australia. Over a 10-year period, the program aims to help 770,000 homes install solar panels or solar hot water systems. 

If all goes according to plan, then Solar Victoria will account for an eighth of Victoria’s 40 per cent target for renewable energy by 2025.
