    Michael O'Leary is the Deputy CEO & Project Director of MAP Co. responsible for the Melbourne Arts Precinct Transformation Project; Fed Square Commercial & Operations; Policy, Strategy & Governance; Finance, People & Culture; and ICT.

    He has held numerous senior executive roles including with the Department of Premier and Cabinet, Creative Victoria, the COVID-19 Industry Coordination Centre, and Museums Victoria and has worked in the Victorian Public Sector since beginning work in the Department of Education in 1999. Across these senior roles, Michael has overseen delivery across a number of critical corporate areas including financial management, planning and analysis, ICT strategy and delivery, legal services and corporate governance, facilities management, infrastructure development and delivery, policy, information and compliance, security and emergency management, stakeholder engagement and management and business improvement. 

    The MAPT project will deliver The Fox: NGV Contemporary – a new gallery dedicated to art and design, significant upgrades to Arts Centre Melbourne’s Theatres Building, and a new 18,000 square metre urban garden for people to enjoy. The Melbourne Arts Precinct already has one of the highest concentrations of arts, cultural and creative organisations anywhere in the world – and presents up to 3000 performances and exhibitions in a typical year. The finished project will attract millions more cultural tourists every year, and it will transform both Southbank and the city. 

    The Melbourne Arts Precinct Transformation project is aiming to have 95% of the materials removed from 77 Southbank Boulevard reused or recycled?
    The new contemporary art and design gallery, The Fox: NGV Contemporary will be the largest gallery dedicated to contemporary art and design in Australia, hosting internationally significant works of art and exhibitions. We look forward to seeing this extraordinary new building come to life and hearing from the Deputy CEO charged with the transformation.
