Adrian Schrinner, Brisbane Lord Mayor
Adrian Schrinner became Lord Mayor in April 2019 following the retirement of Graham Quirk. He was re-elected in March 2020, along with his team of Councillors. As well as being one of Brisbane’s youngest ever Lord Mayors he came to the role with significant on the job experience, having previously served as Deputy Mayor for eight years, and as a Councillor since 2005.
As Lord Mayor of Australia’s largest local government, Cr Schrinner has set out a distinct vision for the future of Brisbane, with major investments in new bridges for pedestrians and cyclists, and record investment in parks and public open space – including Council’s Victoria Park vision which will create Brisbane’s biggest new park in 50 years.
He is excited that work is now underway on the turn-up-and-go Brisbane Metro project – an Australian first that will revolutionise public transport in Brisbane.
Following the election, Cr Schrinner reshaped Brisbane’s Civic Cabinet to reflect his administration’s priorities, adding new portfolio areas of City Standards and the Night-time Economy, as well as creating a coronavirus recovery taskforce.
Cr Schrinner lives in the suburb of Carindale with his wife Nina and their four young children. Both as Lord Mayor and as a dad, his goal is to ensure the Brisbane of tomorrow is better than the Brisbane of today.
