The ATA has appointed its new CEO to take over on July 3, coming from a background with the ALRTA

The Australian Trucking Association (ATA) has named its new CEO, with Mathew Munro confirmed as the association’s new head.

Following the retirement of current CEO Michael Deegan, Munro, who is currently the executive director of the Australian Livestock and Rural Transporters Association (ALRTA), will begin as CEO on July 3.

ATA Chair David Smith says he as enjoyed working with Deegan over the past two years and is sad to see him go, but is looking forward to the smooth transition.

“Mat will bring so much experience to the role and will build on Michael’s great work. I look forward to joining forces with Mat as we tackle industry issues together,” Smith says.

Munro has worked for more than 25 years in contested public policy across industry and government, including with two ATA member associations: Executive Director of the Australian Livestock and Rural Transporters Association (ALRTA) and Policy Director with the National Road Transport Operators Association (NatRoad).
He has also worked with the Grains Council of Australia, Real Estate Institute of Australia and with government at the Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics (ABARES) and the ACT Government Department of Disability, Housing and Community Services.
He holds a Bachelor of Environmental Science, graduate qualifications in Applied Science, and a Master of Business Administration.
