He will join Chairman Gary Banks and Commissioner David Robertson on the Inquiry.

Dr Shann is eminently qualified for the task. He has high level experience in the public and private sectors. Dr Shann's experience includes work at the International Monetary Fund, the Treasury, Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet, and Chief Economist of Shell (Australia).
