The Victorian Transport Association (VTA) elected Cameron Dunn as the new president during its annual general meeting in Melbourne yesterday.

Dunn will replace Brendan Hopley, who will remain a member of VTA’s executive council after having served as president of the association for four years.

Dunn, who is also a member of its executive council, has held the position of VTA vice president for the past four years.

He has over 30 years’ experience in the Australian transport sector, and has served as MD of privately-owned national bulk and dangerous goods transport company FBT Transport since 2009.

Dunn is also the current deputy chairman of the National Bulk Tanker Association (NBTA), and a member of the Plastics and Chemicals Industries Association (PACIA) board and the Australian Road Transport Industry Organisation (ARTIO) Victoria board.

"It is a great honour to have been elected President of one of the oldest and most influential transport associations in Australia, and I thank my fellow councillors for entrusting me with this significant responsibility," Dunn says.

"I look forward to working closely with the Council, Peter Anderson and the secretariat to positively advocate on issues impacting our industry, and help to make our members more productive, profitable and successful."

VTA CEO Peter Anderson welcomed Dunn to the new role and thanked former president Hopley for his contribution to the industry and the association.

"Cameron Dunn has been an active and valued member of the VTA for many years and on behalf of the executive council, secretariat and membership, we congratulate him on his election as President of our association," Anderson says.

"Cameron has a unique familiarity with the numerous issues facing our industry on a state and national level, and with his experience and contacts he will play a vital role in advancing our strategic efforts to influence positive legislative, regulatory and practical change.

"We are thrilled that outgoing President Brendan Hopley will remain a member of the executive council, and we sincerely thank him for the generous time, effort and dedication he applied to his four years as president.

"Brendan has successfully overseen a period of positive and significant change and transition at the VTA, and I look forward to his ongoing counsel and friendship."
