Welcome to new President

QCAT welcomes Justice David Thomas as its new President.

Justice Thomas took over on October 22, replacing Justice Alan Wilson who returns to the Supreme Court after a four-year term with the tribunal.

Prior to joining QCAT, Justice Thomas has most recently been a partner at Minter Ellison Lawyers, and held senior board positions with several organisations including the Royal National Agricultural and Industrial Association of Queensland (RNA), Queensland Ballet and the Queensland Maritime Museum.

His significant experience and proven qualities as a lawyer, administrator and proponent of alternative dispute resolution will be well utilised to oversee the diverse cases and issues dealt with at QCAT.
