Ms Lyons has been with the DSD since 2009 and prior to her new role was employed as the department’s director of legal services.
While at the DSD, Ms Lyons has provided extensive legal advice on a range of complex matters, including approval pathways for infrastructure projects, real estate developments, resources projects, native title, tender processes and market-led proposals.
