The Bus Industry Confederation (BIC) has announced its new council at its annual general meeting last Sunday, with some changes being made.
Confirmed on the eve of last week’s national BIC conference held in Adelaide, BIC’s AGM saw some new members begin on the BIC council.
Anthony ‘Tony’ Hopkins was once again confirmed as chair, with Scania’s Julian Gurney returning to the vice chair position.
The pair will be joined on the council by the likes of Wayne Patch, Mark McKenzie, Volgren’s Yuri Tessari, BCI’s Desmond Armstrong and Mitch Peden from Volvo Bus Australia.
United Safety’s Mick Hall is also on board alongside Anthony O’Donnell from Coachair, Jack Kotlyar, Leanne Griffiths from Red Bus Services, Byron Rowe from Busways and Adam Pulitano.
Emerald Coaches’ Michael Baulch is also joined by Stephen Lucas from Warrnambool Bus Lines, Rachel Hodge and Ben Doolan.
“Buckle up everyone, we’re in for a big year,” BIC says.
“Thank you to the outgoing councillors for all of your hard work on behalf of the industry – to John King, Joe Oliveri, Rolf Mitchell and Tony La Rocca.”
