Peter Garske tended his resignation at the QTA board meeting on February 9.


Long serving industry executive Peter Garske has tendered his resignation as the CEO of the Queensland Trucking Association (QTA), the industry body’s president Ben Almond has announced.

Garske’s resignation was accepted by the board of directors, which thanked him for his contribution to the association over the past 20 years.

"QTA Ltd Board of Directors has accepted Peter’s resignation acknowledging his significant contribution across 20 years of service to the Board and the Association’s members," Almond says in a statement.

"The date of effect will be determined by a process of advertising, recruitment and transition of an appointee to replace him as Chief Executive Officer of the Association.

"In serving on many Government and Industry Boards, Councils and Committees, Peter has represented the industry with professional expertise, earning the trust, not only of the Association’s members, but also of Premiers, Ministers and Senior Public Servants.

"There is no better indicator of the reputation of the Association and its outgoing CEO, than the fact that both sides of politics have sought and acted on our opinions and submissions."

The association is looking for a replacement for Garske, with the formal recruitment process starting next week.
