Warwick Ragg has been dumped as CEO of the National Road Transport Association (NatRoad).

His departure was confirmed this morning and has taken immediate effect.

NatRoad president Geoff Crouch advised members in an email alert today.

"Whilst this situation is disappointing, the NatRoad executive firmly believes it is the right decision for the future of the association," he says.

"It is important to note, the NatRoad secretariat remains committed to providing our members with the advice and ongoing support needed to assist with the running of their businesses."

He says the executive will immediately begin the search for a new CEO.

That might be made easier given that many of therésumés collected during the organisation’s last recruitment drive may still be current.

Ragg’s appointment was only confirmed in January, with Crouch noting that over 50 candidates had applied for the role.

Ragg came to NatRoad with over 20 years’ experience in member-based industry associations, including 11 years as CEO of Australian Forest Growers.

"I’d like to thank Warwick for his contribution during his time with NatRoad," Crouch says today.
