TMAA announces appointment of new CEO

Transport Management Association of Australia (TMAA) has announced the appointment of its new CEO, Matthew Bereni, effective immediately.

The appointment finalised by TMAA’s Board of Directors in December 2022 sees Bereni take on the role from outgoing CEO, Louise Van Ristell, who stepped down in November 2022.

Prior to joining TMAA, Bereni held the role of National Director of Strategy & Innovation at the Australian Road Research Board (ARRB).

His previous roles also included Manager of National Harmonisation at the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) and Manager of Pricing and Economics at the National Transport Commission (NTC).

TMAA President, Andrew White, was pleased to welcome Bereni to the team.

“His extensive experience in government and the transport industry and his proven track record of successful organisational transformation make him the ideal candidate to lead our association into the future,” he said.

“We are confident that Matthew will take TMAA to new heights and that the association will continue to grow under his leadership.

“I would also like to acknowledge Louise Van Ristell and thank her for the contribution and leadership she has provided to the organisation over the past 11 years.”

Bereni said he was honoured to join TMAA and lead such a talented team.

“TMAA advocates for excellence and safety for the traffic management industry which is very appealing to me,” he said.

“I look forward to working closely with the board, employees, and current and future members to build upon the strong foundation that has been established by the Board and the previous CEO, and to capitalise on new opportunities for growth and success.”
