Campbell Kevin Thomas Newman (born 12 August 1963) is the leader of the Liberal National Party of Queensland. He was the 15th Lord Mayor of Brisbane from 2004 to 2011.

He was elected to the mayoralty in 2004 and re-elected in 2008. Newman's slogan during the 2004 and 2008 election campaigns was "Can Do". It is common for supporters to refer to him as "Can Do Campbell". At Duntroon, he was nicknamed "Noddy", in reference to his appearance during his time in the Army.

Since July 2008, Newman and his Liberal council colleagues have been members of the merged Liberal National Party of Queensland. Jeff Seeney led the LNP state parliamentary opposition from September 2006 until January 2008 when he was ousted in favour of Lawrence Springborg. In March 2011, successive leader John-Paul Langbroek stood down in favour of Newman. Seeney was elected interim opposition leader, Newman will lead the LNP to the next Queensland state election and simultaneously contest the seat of Ashgrove. If he is successful, Newman will assume the position of parliamentary leader of the LNP, and if the party is elected to government, Premier of Queensland.
