NTC welcomes CEO appointment

The National Transport Commission (NTC) today announced the appointment of Dr Gillian Miles as its new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Commissioner.

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

NTC Chair, Carolyn Walsh said 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.

“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,” said Walsh.

Walsh also acknowledged the contribution of Acting CEO, Dr Geoff Allan following the departure of former CEO and Commissioner, Paul Retter in late 2018.

The Victorian Transport Association (VTA) is thrilled with the appointment of Gillian Miles as CEO and Commissioner of the NTC.

“Dr Miles brings significant transport experience to the role, and her appointment comes at an important time for the NTC as it leads the important review of National Heavy Vehicle Law,” the VTA said in a statement.

“The VTA has enjoyed a long and productive relationship with the NTC and we look forward to building on this through working collaboratively with Dr Miles and her team.

“We wish Dr Miles every success in this new and exciting role.”

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Regional Development Michael McCormack also welcomed the appointment.

"Dr Miles has a proven track record as a senior executive and is well-placed to lead the National Transport Commission (NTC) as it embarks on a number of significant reforms in land transport," he said in a statement.

"The NTC is leading the charge on a number of landmark reforms across the transport sector including ensuring the nation is ready for automated vehicles and conducting the review of the Heavy Vehicle National Law—and Dr Miles is based to lead the commission in to the future."

“I look forward to working with Dr Miles to progress these reforms to improve the land transport sector in this nation.”
