Roll'd founder Bao Hoang named board member of JobMaker advisory board

He was appointed to offer advice on franchising and health care services.

Roll’d founder Bao Hoang has been named as a new member of the government’s JobMaker advisory board, which is now focused on job creation and economic growth.

In an announcement from the Prime Minister, the National COVID-19 Coordination Commission is moving into a new mode and will be reassembled to execute the government’s JobMaker plan under the leadership of the mining sector’s respected executive, Nev Power, as chair.

The group will now be referred to as the National COVID-19 Commission (NCC) Advisory Board, to better reflect its role, the Prime Minister said, and will work within the government, forming part of the cabinet deliberative processes.

“While the health response continues to be of the utmost importance in managing outbreaks as they arise, we have to continue our focus on recovery and reform,” the Prime Minister said. “I have asked the commission to concentrate its efforts and business expertise on providing advice on what more could be done to create as many jobs as quickly as possible to accelerate Australia’s economic recovery.”

The JobMaker Plan is described as having been built on enabling a business-led post-COVID economic recovery through skills and training reform, industrial relations reform, boosting manufacturing capability, infrastructure revival, deregulation, tax and federation reform.

Huang joins along with new members including former Bendigo Bank managing director Mike Hirst and Transurban CFO Samantha Hogg and existing commission members Jane Halton, Paul Little and David Thodey. The commission is led by Nev Power.

“Together, they bring valuable expertise in the sectors of finance, resources and infrastructure, regional Australia, small business and workforce issues,” Mr. Morrison said. “I look forward to their contribution to our economic recovery.”
