Brendan Hopley appointed President of the VTA

Brendan Hopley, Chief Operating Officer of Murphy Transport Solutions, was elected President of the Victorian Transport Association at the VTA Annual General Meeting last week.

“A key objective for me will be to build on the very good work of Paul Freestone (outgoing VTA President) and Glen Cameron (VP),” Hopley said. “Safety is paramount, as is striving to ensure that the industry becomes drug and alcohol free – the VTA will be working very hard to ensure that random drug and alcohol testing becomes mandatory for the transport industry.”

With over 40 years experience in the transport industry in Australia and abroad, Hopley will be supported Cameron Dunn, Managing Director, FBT Transwest, and Andrew Eastick, National Infrastructure Manager at Toll IPEC, who were both elected Vice-Presidents for 2012/2013.

“We are extremely privileged to have Brendan Hopley as our new President,” Neil Chambers, VTA CEO, said. “Brendan is passionate about the transport and logistics industry, and passionate about ensuring that the VTA continues to be the pre-eminent employer – prime contractor association representing the industry in Australia.”
