The Australian Road Research Board (ARRB) has a new state technical leader in Queensland after appointing charted civil engineer and former National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) manager Matthew Bereni to the post.

With 15 years of experience in both the private and public sector in Civil Engineering, Economics, Regulatory and Policy Reform roles, ARRB’s chief executive Michael Caltabiano says Bereni will lead its Queensland office through the next leg in its transformation program.

"Matthew’s extensive knowledge of our stakeholders and industry will be invaluable as we are implementing our vision set out in our 2017-2020 Strategic Plan," he says.

"Matthew and his team will actively contribute to drive innovation and deliver an adaptable, connected future."

Arriving at the ARRB after leading the NHVR’s national harmonisation program team, Bereni has previously worked on major projects for the European Commission and the OECD, gaining insights into the impacts of heavy vehicle infrastructure, and for the National Transport Commission as manager of pricing and economics.

Stating he is privileged to work for the ARRB, "an organisation which is successfully moving boldly into the future while building on decades of recognised experience in our industry", Bereni says he is "looking forward to further strengthening our position as the most advanced source of independent expert transport knowledge, advising key decision makers on our most important and critical challenges".

The ARRB says Bereni’s focus will be on delivering high quality applied research to road managers, industry and the community.
