About The Hon Matt Kean MP

Matt Kean was born in Wahroonga on September 16, 1981, and became the Member for Hornsby on March 26, 2011.

The next year, he was elected to chair the NSW Parliament’s Joint Standing Committee on the Office of the Valuer General, later recommending radical changes to the system of land valuation in NSW.

Re-elected in March 2015, Mr Kean continued his advocacy for the people of Hornsby and counts amongst his achievements the completion of the $120 million first stage – and the start of the $200 million second stage - of the Hornsby Hospital rebuild.

He is a tireless campaigner on mental health issues and suicide prevention, especially as it impacts our young people. His first speech in parliament after his 2011 election was dedicated to a young friend who had recently taken his own life.

On January 30, 2017, Mr Kean was elected to Cabinet as the Minister for Innovation and Better Regulation, responsible for portfolio as diverse as consumer protection, strata laws and workplace safety.

With a passion for innovation, he is determined to make NSW the innovation and start-up epicentre of the Asia Pacific.
