National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) chief executive Sal Petroccitto has announced three new appointments to the NHVR leadership team following a nation-wide search to drive regulatory reform for Australia’s heavy vehicle industry.

"These appointments bring new skills and capabilities to our leadership team and ensure one of the key building blocks of the NHVR’s new organisational structure is in place," he says.

"On behalf of the NHVR Board, I am delighted to welcome these talented individuals to our organization, as we embark on a new phase of stabilization and delivery in collaboration and partnership with industry and government."

The new appointees are executive director (productivity and safety) Geoff Casey, executive director (engagement and partnerships) Karen Vohland and executive director (regulatory compliance) Tony Kursius.

"For me, last year’s priorities were to build relationships with industry and key government agencies and restore their confidence in our ability to get the job done," says Petroccitto. 

"This year, the NHVR leadership team will deliver on those key initiatives that industry has been calling for, such as improvements to Australia’s heavy vehicle maintenance and accreditation regimes, fatigue management options tailored to industry needs and more consistency in roadside enforcement.

"With strong support from our industry and government partners, I am very proud of the momentum we achieved last year and am looking forward to a very successful 2015."
