The Director General of the New South Wales Ministry of Transport Jim Glasson has resigned, the department announced last week.

It emerged that Glasson, who has served as Director General for three years, will be leaving his post this Friday in order to take up a position at ComfortDelGro Cabcharge.

Minister for Transport David Campbell says Glasson will be sorely missed within the department and in Government.

"Mr Glasson has been a dedicated contributor to public transport improvements during his time at the Ministry," he says.

"I am professionally and personally saddened by his resignation but recognise that all government departments can benefit from renewal and the Ministry of Transport is no exception.

"I want to thank Mr Glasson for his dedication to his work and wish him well in his future endeavours."

Glasson has an extensive history in the NSW public service, having worked on rail services for the Sydney Olympics and held several roles involving ports and freight efficiency across the state, including a period as Acting CEO of Port Kembla Port Corporation during 2004/05.

The Department’s Deputy Director General Joanna Quilty will become acting Director General pending a decision on a permanent replacement.
