The Advanced Manufacturing Growth Centre (AMGC) has appointed Charmaine Barrett to the position of Director, Northern Territory (NT) for AMGC.
With 15-years’ industry experience, Charmaine joins AMGC from Industry Capability Network (ICN) where she held positions as Operations Manager and Business Development Manager for the NT.
In her new role, Charmaine will lead the joint, five-year, $8.75 million NT/AMGC program to fast-track investment and commercialisation of advanced manufacturing opportunities across the Territory.
“As a proud Territorian, I cannot wait to get to work and build a stronger, more diverse manufacturing industry not only across the Top End but also in our regional centres. Over the past 15-years I have seen firsthand the potential of NT businesses. A program such as this is exactly what we require to spur innovation, investment, and prosperity for the region. I look forward to getting to work with AMGC and the Northern Territory Government” expressed Charmaine.
“The Northern Territory is certainly leading ahead of other jurisdictions when it comes to understanding the potential of manufacturing. Charmaine brings with her a deep understanding of the Territories industrial landscape, and she is the perfect person to convert this potential into outcomes. With the appointment of Charmaine to the role and the Territory Government as a partner, AMGC has all the right ingredients in place to transform the Top End from being a lucky economy to a smart one, underpinned by a thriving manufacturing industry” said AMGC Managing Director, Dr Jens Goennemann.
