Sam Sangster moving on from Western Parkland City Authority


The Chair of the Western Parkland City Authority (WPCA), Jennifer Westacott AO, has announced that Sam Sangster will be leaving the organisation in early October.

Mr Sangster was the inaugural CEO of the then Western City and Aerotropolis Authority. He has successfully set in train the NSW Government's vision for a thriving Aerotropolis to maximise the opportunities presented by the Western Sydney Airport.

During his time in the NSW Government, Mr Sangster was also instrumental to shaping communities across NSW, having led the delivery of over 93 projects – valued in excess of $10 billion - as head of Health Infrastructure.

"Sam has made a great contribution to NSW, and Western Sydney in particular, and has been instrumental to the progress of the Aerotropolis. He has curated a highly successful investment attraction program, and established the pathway for construction in the Aerotropolis to commence in the foreseeable future," said Ms Westacott.

The Minister for Jobs, Investment, Tourism and Western Sydney, the Hon Stuart Ayres MP, also reflected on Mr Sangster's significant contribution.

"Sam has been an asset to the NSW Government and, more recently, to the Western Parkland City. The Aerotropolis is on an amazing trajectory for success and this is in no small part due to Sam's efforts and successes.

"Sam took an idea from inception and sold the vision for the Aerotropolis to the world. He will be able to look back with satisfaction as this vision progresses toward delivery," said Minister Ayres.

Mr Sangster's last day with the WPCA will be 2 October.
