GoZero Group announces trio of important appointments

Among GoZero Group’s latest appointments is a well-known bus industry member making the move from a popular operator

GoZero Group has revealed three key appointments, including the announcement that well-known bus industry member Leanne Griffiths is the brand’s new executive of industry development in the electric vehicle space.

Griffiths joins the group from operator Red Bus Services, where she was general manager of the depot throughout her stint of almost 20 years with the company before joining GoZero.

During her time at Red Bus, Griffiths managed government bus services contracts and led a diverse team responsible for bus operations, maintenance, human resources, industrial relations, contract managements and health and safety.

Prior to that, she was a senior accountant at PKF, with Griffiths being best known for her active involvement in industry advocacy over the past 15 years as a council member of the Bus Industry Confederation (BIC) and a board member of BusNSW.

The move is one of many recent appointments made by GoZero Group to enhance its expert capability, particularly of female transport industry talent to allow for a culturally diverse workforce.
