Bob Martin is CVIAQ president again.

Two state peak automotive industry bodies, the Commercial Vehicle Industry Association (CVIAQ) and the Victorian Automotive Chamber of Commerce (VACC), have seen action at the top.

The CVIAQ has re-elected Jost Australia’s Bob Martin for a sixth term as president at an annual general meeting in which board members John Edwards of Hastings Deering renominated and re-elected through the body’s rotation process.

Two others, Cameron McFadyen of South East Queensland Tilt Tray and Derek Marriott of Iveco Trucks did not seek re-election.

Anthony Dore of Varley Group did not re-nominate as vice president remains on the board as a director, with Chris Musch of Isuzu taking the vacated position.

 Meanwhile, Auto Skills Australia CEO Geoff Gwilym is the new executive director of the VACC.

He succeeds David Purchase who leaves the post after 17 years.

"Geoff will bring a wealth of experience to the organisation, which will ensure it continues to provide its 5,500 members in Victoria and Tasmania with excellent advice and service," VACC president John Buskes says of Gwilym, a former Transport and Logistics Skills Council CEO.
