"Gillian's wealth of knowledge and experience is well suited to leading the NTC through a period of significant change across the land transport sector,” NTC Chair Carolyn Walsh said.

The NTC is a statutory body charged with improving the productivity, safety and environmental performance of Australia's road, rail and intermodal transport system, it states.

Dr Miles, a former Victorian government senior executive, will commence in the role next week following an extensive recruitment process, the NTC says.

NTC Chair Carolyn Walsh says the appointment of Dr Miles has come at an important time with the NTC undertaking a number of significant reforms in land transport.

"Innovation, change management and a strategic mindset were front of mind for this appointment, particularly as the NTC continues to make major progress on several landmark transport reforms, including the regulation of automated vehicles and a review of the heavy vehicle national law," Walsh said.

"I'm confident that Gillian's wealth of knowledge and experience is well suited to leading the NTC through a period of significant change across the land transport sector," Walsh added.

Walsh also acknowledges the contribution of acting CEO Dr Geoff Allan following the departure of former CEO and Commissioner Paul Retter AM, late 2018.

BUS AND COACH

Australia's bus industry transports more than 1.5 billion urban passengers every year with communities increasingly relying on buses and coaches for mass transit, says the NTC.

The NTC develops reforms in partnership with industry and governments to improve the safety and productivity of this important part of our nation's transport networks, it states.
