“Together with the NHVR Board and staff, we look forward to continuing our proactive working partnership with Munro, ATA Chair David Smith and ATA staff in driving safety and productivity outcomes for the heavy vehicle supply chain across the country,” he said.

Petroccitto extended warm wishes to outgoing ATA CEO Michael Deegan in retirement and thanked him for his extensive contribution to the heavy vehicle industry.

“I would like to thank Mr Deegan for his dedication and commitment to driving positive and practical outcomes for the heavy vehicle industry and for the collaboration and partnership he maintained with the NHVR,” he said.

For more than 25 years, Munro has worked across the industry in public policy and as the executive director of Australian Livestock and Rural Transporters Association.
