The Traffic Management Association of Australia (TMAA) has announced the appointment of its new Chief Executive Officer, effective immediately. 

Matthew Bereni brings a wealth of experience and leadership skills to the association and will be responsible for driving the company’s strategic vision and growth. 

The appointment finalised by TMAA’s Board of Directors in December 2022 sees Matthew Bereni take on the role from outgoing CEO Louise Van Ristell, who stepped down in November 2022.

TMAA President, Andrew White, said, “We are thrilled to welcome Matthew to the TMAA team. 

“His extensive experience in government and the transport industry and his proven track record of successful organisational transformation make him the ideal candidate to lead our association into the future.

“We are confident that Matthew will take TMAA to new heights and that the association will continue to grow under his leadership.

“I would also like to acknowledge Louise Van Ristell and thank her for the contribution and leadership she has provided to the organisation over the past 11 years.”

Mr Bereni has extensive industry and leadership experience in the public and private sectors in civil and transport engineering. Prior to joining TMAA, Mr Bereni held the role of National Director of Strategy & Innovation with the Australian Road Research Board (ARRB). 

Mr Bereni said he is honoured to join TMAA and lead such a talented team. 

“TMAA advocates for excellence and safety for the traffic management industry which is very appealing to me. I look forward to working closely with the board, employees, and current and future members to build upon the strong foundation that has been established by the Board and the previous CEO, and to capitalise on new opportunities for growth and success,” Mr Bereni said.

TMAA is the national peak body for Traffic Management. It represents the Traffic Management and Traffic Control industry throughout Australia. Traffic management companies and traffic controllers across the country work in a range of multi-billion dollar infrastructure, recovery, relief and rebuild projects. 

The industry employs about 300,000 traffic controllers and provides work on roads, construction, events, utilities, reconstruction and emergency and disaster relief.
