ATA and Daimler Truck and Bus reveal future leaders

The Australian Trucking Association (ATA) and Daimler Truck and Bus Australia Pacific have announced the participants in the 2018 Daimler Truck and Bus Future Leaders’ Forum. 

The Daimler Truck and Bus Future Leaders’ Forum is a professional program for hand-picked trucking business owners and employees. The leaders come from a range of backgrounds and roles, including logistics, business management, technology and innovation.

ATA Chair, Geoff Crouch, said the trucking industry needs to address the challenge of technological disruption, as well as the issues of today.

“To deal with these challenges, the industry needs a new generation of leaders,” said Crouch. “The Daimler Truck and Bus Future Leaders’ Forum will provide its participants with an opportunity to develop their potential as future leaders of the industry and the ATA’s network of member associations.”

The participants will take part in two days of intensive workshops in Canberra on 27-28 March 2018, learning how government policy is developed and how businesses and industry associations can have an influence in an effective and ethical way.

Daimler Truck and Bus Australia Pacific President and CEO, Daniel Whitehead, said that focusing on fresh talent was the key to building a stronger industry.

“Daimler Truck and Bus is excited to be part of an initiative that will help nurture the next generation of Australian transport industry leaders,” said Whitehead. “We want the transport industry to be a destination industry for the country’s finest.”
