Commissioner Shane Fitzsimmons

Shane Fitzsimmons became a household name during the 2019-20 Australian bushfire crisis. While no one wants a repeat of the conditions which led to his prominence on our news feeds, the resilience, authenticity and empathy with which he managed that disaster left an indelible impression on the public. As a leader, he set a high bar, displaying a mix of professionalism and compassion that few Australians will forget. 

The former Commissioner of the NSW Rural Fire Service is now the Head of Resilience NSW and those same qualities continue to play a critical role in the way he leads.
