Transport Certification Australia (TCA) has appointed a leader in the road transport sector as its new Executive General Manager (EGM).
Stuart Ballingall will take up the role, effective 6 May 2019.
Mr Ballingall 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.
Mr Ballingall 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’s mission is to provide assurance to governments, industry sectors and end-users in the use of telematics and related intelligent technologies.
The organisation was acquired in January 2019 by Austroads, the peak body of Australasian road transport and traffic agencies, led by Chief Executive, Nick Koukoulas.
Speaking about the new appointment, Mr Koukoulas said Austroads was looking to build on TCA’s strong reputation and excellent work through a refresh and revitalisation of the organisation.
“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,” Mr Koukoulas said.
“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.”
