The Australian Trucking Association has thanked outgoing CEO Andrew McKellar for his work at the organisation since February.
Mr McKellar has been appointed as the CEO of the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ACCI), Australia’s largest and most representative business association.
ATA Chair David Smith said that Mr McKellar would leave the ATA with key strategic achievements, including work on its new strategic plan and a start to reviewing the ATA’s governance arrangements.
“During the weeks before he leaves the ATA, Andrew and I will firmly focus on maintaining the momentum on dealing with these important priorities and on progressing a transition plan,” Mr Smith said.
Outgoing CEO Andrew McKellar thanked the ATA board and council, and the trucking industry, for their warm welcome, support and encouragement.
“Despite my short time in office, I will leave the role with a far greater appreciation of the critical role that the road transport sector plays in the Australian economy and the many great people and personalities that populate the industry,” Mr McKellar said.
Mr McKellar will leave the ATA on Friday 6 August, before commencing with ACCI on Monday 9 August.
