NHVR announces leadership restructure


The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) Board today announced a revised leadership structure for the Regulator.

NHVR Chief Executive, Sal Petroccitto, speaking on behalf of the Board, said the NHVR is embarking on a new phase of collaboration and partnership with industry and government, driving more responsive customer service and practical regulation.

"To be able to meet the needs of industry and partner organisations, the NHVR is implementing a revised business model and a new organisational structure," said Mr Petroccitto.

"This will facilitate the NHVR to move to the next stage of its development," he said.

Angus Draheim, former General Manager (Operations), and Philip Halton, former General Manager (Strategy and Business Development) have moved on from the NHVR, with Mr Petroccitto acknowledging the contribution both have made to the development of the national Regulator and the national law.

"I am now undertaking recruitment for three leadership positions; Executive Director – Regulatory Compliance; Executive Director – Engagement and Partnerships; and Executive Director – Productivity and Safety," Mr Petroccitto said.

"All organisations evolve and change," said Mr Petroccitto, "and our new leadership structure will make sure we have the right talent, skills and experience to take the Regulator forward".
