Minister for Sport

Mick de Brenni

Mick de Brenni

Mick de Brenni was elected to the Queensland Parliament in 2015 as the Member for Springwood and served as Chief Government Whip until his promotion to the Ministry in December 2015 as Minister for Housing and Public Works.

In February this year Mick was appointed as Minister for Sport, a position that he is honoured to hold.

Mick sees sport as key to both the health of our society and the strength of our communities and is passionate about club level sport.

Mick was a mad keen rugby player in his younger days, playing for Sunnybank and Reedemer College.

He still keeps active as an avid road cyclist, mountain biker and surfer. I understand he recently took to the boards at the new Anna Meares Velodrome as well.

Mick and his wife Christie live adjacent to the Daisy Hill Conservation Park with their seven year old daughter Scarlette, an avid swimmer, and Charlie who is three and half and just joined his local tennis club.

Dr Steven Miles

Dr Steven Miles is the Minister for Environment and Heritage Protection and Minister for National Parks and the Great Barrier Reef.

Steven has a PhD in Political Science and a bachelor's degree in Political Science and Journalism from the University of Queensland. Prior to entering Parliament, Steven was Managing Director of Reveille Strategy, a Market Research and Communications company.

He was a senior advisor to the Treasurer and Deputy Premier on trade, innovation and economic development matters in the former Bligh government, and has worked in senior roles at the public sector union and United Voice.

He co-founded national parent advocacy organisation The Parenthood.

Steven and wife Kim are raising their three children Sam, Aidan and Bridie.

It was the pending arrival of his first child that led Steven to think more deeply about protecting Queensland's environment, including the Great Barrier Reef, for future generations. He joined Al Gore's Climate Leadership Program to tackle climate change and inspire communities to take action.

Together with his cabinet colleagues, Steven is also committed to tackling unemployment through job creation, listening to and acting upon the concerns of Queenslanders, and restoring integrity and accountability to government in Queensland.
