Zabrieszach leaves VicRoads for transport IT firm
Dean Zabrieszach is about to become HMI’s Australian CEO.


VicRoads is to lose its director of road operations, Dean Zabrieszach, to New Zealand transport technology business HMI Technologies.

To take up his new post as HMI’s Australian CEO on Monday, Zabrieszach leaves just weeks after the Victorian Government announced its intention to ask intelligent transport systems (ITS) providers to come up with road freight productivity and safety initiatives.

"In the last decade technology has rapidly become a vital part of transport infrastructure. All major transport developments now incorporate intelligent transport systems to ensure the network runs as safely and efficiently as possible," Zabrieszach says.

"HMI Technologies is well placed to take advantage of this, with a growing reputation as an industry leader designing, manufacturing and supporting cutting edge ITS solutions."

HMI Technologies develops Intelligent Transport Solutions (ITS) used by private businesses, governments and their road and transport agencies.

The company headquarters and research and development facility is located Auckland and the business also has manufacturing operations in China.

Its manufacturing is primarily in electronic signage, sensors and beacons supported by software solutions and maintenance.

It already has products operating on Melbourne’s M80 Ring Road and on the West Gate Freeway.

"Mr Zabrieszach brings an enormous amount of valuable industry experience and it’s great to have him join us as we commit to expanding our local representation in Australian and Asia-Pacific Markets," HMI co-owner and managing director Ahmed Hikmet says.
