VTA former president receives OAM

Victorian Transport Association past President Trevor Martyn has been recognised with a Medal of the Order of Australia. The acknowledgement was announced in the General Division as part of the weekend celebrations for the Queen’s Birthday Honour’s List.

Peter Anderson, CEO, VTA, said Martyn had made an enormous and selfless contribution to the Australian transport industry in a decorated career, which has spanned more than 50 years.

“I can think of no one worthier and more deserving of an Order of Australia Medal than Trevor for his many services to the road transport industry and to the community,” said Anderson.

Martyn served on the Executive Council of the VTA from 1998-2005, including four years as President 2002-2005. He also served as a Director and Executive Chair of the Australian Trucking Association from 2002-2010.

Some of his other roles include Chairman of Driver Education Centre Australia (DECA) from 2007-2012, and a stint as President of the National Bulk Tanker Association, and Chair of Global Air Ambulance for four years.

As a professional he was Managing Director of FBT Operations for 38 years from 1969-2007.
