GNBC_May General Meeting_Rod Stowe

The Greater Narellan Business Chamber proudly presents

Mr Rod Stowe | PSM, FRSN

Join us as he shares some insights into how government policies and decisions are made

Not all public policy making is the result of careful evaluation and analysis. People, events, opportunity, can all have a hand in how critical decisions are made. As one of the State’s top bureaucrats, Rod Stowe was witness for decades to this process. Now out of the hot seat, Rod will share some of his observations on these events and the motives and people behind them.


Rod Stowe formally retired from the NSW Public Service in November 2018 following a distinguished career spanning 41 years.

Over this period, Rod spent 30 years in the Fair Trading/Consumer Affairs portfolio where he held various positions, including Commissioner, Deputy Commissioner, Assistant Commissioner for Policy & Strategy, Director of Customer Services and Ministerial Adviser. Prior to these appointments, Rod had postings in agencies covering environmental protection, education and youth affairs, local government and state superannuation.

Best known for his achievements in consumer protection, Rod became a familiar public figure through his regular media appearances as Fair Trading Commissioner and was one of the architects of the Australian Consumer Law. He also championed the introduction of the ground-breaking NSW Consumer Complaints Register and oversaw the successful implementation of the Consumer Protection Strategy for the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games.

Since his retirement, Rod has continued to be involved in consumer and community advocacy, representing consumer interests on a number of Boards and Committees. Most recently he was appointed as TransGrid’s Landowner and Community Advocate.
