Victorian Transport Association names new Vice President

The Victorian Transport Association (VTA) has elected Murphy Transport Solutions CEO, Cameron Murphy, to the role of Vice President.

At its annual General Meeting on 10 November, the VTA Executive Council also re-elected President, Mike Lean, and Vice-President, Dennis Ryan, for further terms.

In addition, Silk Contract Logistics Managing Director, Brendan Boyd, was elected to the Executive Council – a move which VTA CEO, Peter Anderson, said will further strengthen operator representation on the Council and set the strategic direction of the VTA.

“Since joining the Executive Council in 2020, Cameron has provided tremendous guidance and counsel during the disruptions of the pandemic and associated economic contraction,” Anderson said.

“I’m pleased with his election as Vice President and look forward to his contributions over the coming year.

“Brendan Boyd has been a terrific supporter of the VTA as a member and with his election to the Council I anticipate a strong and enduring contribution to the deliberations of the Executive Council.

“He’s a strong and talented business leader and knows transport and the real-world challenges faced by operators and suppliers, and we welcome him aboard.”

Delivering his fourth President’s Report since being elected to the role in 2019, Lean acknowledged the Executive Council and Secretariat’s efforts and achievements this year.

“As a Victorian-based association we have a strong focus on the issues that matter most to our Victorian members and associate members,” he said.

“This year we’ve had very strong engagement with stakeholders on local roads and infrastructure, with additional funding secured to repair and reinstate roads that were washed away in last year’s floods.

“Our strong relationship with the Victorian Government has been key to our successful execution of the Driver Delivery program, which has produced hundreds of new qualified drivers to the industry and is helping to ease driver shortages.”

In other news, former Kalari Managing Director, Peter O’Shannessy, has received the VTA’s W.F.D Chalmers Award in recognition of his many years of outstanding service.
