Treasurer Cameron Dick announced Mr Bradley’s retirement from the QTC, which he headed up for the past decade.

Bradley, who served as Queensland’s Under Treasurer for 14 years during the Borbidge, Beattie and Bligh governments, has been instrumental in key decisions affecting the state’s economy.

“He’s risen to be a giant of the State’s bureaucracy and business world and Gerard’s efforts for modern Queensland are unmatched,” Mr Dick said.

“So many major investment decisions by the State Government across the past 40 years have been either signed-off or reviewed by Gerard.

“His contribution to Queensland is very significant.”

Bradley, who is also a director of the Star Entertainment Group, was made an Officer of the Order of Australia last year for his service to public administration.

Dick said Bradley was known across the public sector and the business world for “his intellect, his strategy and his gracious manner”.

His retirement takes effect later this year.
