Transport Certification Australia (TCA) has announced the appointment of Stuart Ballingall as its new Executive General Manager (EGM), the new boss at TCA commences in the role on May 6.
The appointment follows the stepping down of Chris Koniditsiotis, the founding CEO of the TCA in its previous incarnation as an independent agency. The new EGM takes over as the organisation folds into the larger Austroads set-up.
Stuart has over 20 years’ experience in the automotive and transport sectors, including executive leadership roles at VicRoads, Austroads and, most recently, Transport for Victoria where he will be leaving his role as director of future vehicles and transport innovation to take up his new EGM role at TCA.
He has significant board and governance committee experience, including with the Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP) Board, the National Positioning Infrastructure Advisory Board, the national Land Transport Technologies Working Group, and several other national and international committees on vehicle and transport technologies.
TCA was acquired in January 2019 by Austroads, the peak organisation of Australasian road transport and traffic agencies, led by Chief Executive, Nick Koukoulas.
“In a period of national and international transport reform happening now and into the future, we need someone of Stuart’s proven experience in delivering complex technical programs, particularly in areas of transport technologies, information systems, policy and regulatory reform,” said Nick about the appointment.
TCA’s mission is to provide assurance to governments, industry sectors and end-users in the use of telematics and related intelligent technologies.
“We trust Stuart will lead TCA in a way that is innovative, drives growth and supports the state and federal governments’ current and emerging transport needs,” said Nick. “We are looking to build on TCA’s strong reputation and excellent work through a refresh and revitalisation of the organisation.”
