Reserve Bank of Australia Governor Glenn Stevens has been reappointed for another three years ahead of the end of his first seven-year term in September. Since taking on the role in 2006, Stevens helped Australia avoid recession during the global slump of 2008-2009 and kept inflation in check. Stevens is "widely seen as a strong central bank governor from a global perspective," says former RBA economist Paul Bloxham.
