Transport Women Australia Limited (TWAL) has announced two new board appointments, with Roslyn Anderson and Cinzia Chu welcomed at the organisation’s recent annual general meeting (AGM).

Anderson is chief financial controller at Wales Truck Repairs, where she has been in her second stint for the past six years.

A chartered accountant with a Master of Commerce and Accounting, she has also worked in building and construction, and furniture industries in accounting and administration roles.

Chu is IT operations manager at Paccar Australia, working her way up from commodity manager in her four years there.

She has also previously been involved in numerous roles at Iveco and holds a Master of Business Administration.

Jacquelene Brotherton remains as chair, alongside directors Di Caldwell-Smith and Coralie Chapman as vice chair and secretary respectively.

Meanwhile, Michelle Harwood departed after one year on the board.

"It is with regret we accepted the resignation of Michelle Harwood from the board after one year with us," Brotherton says.

"She has been an amazing asset who has devoted a huge amount of time and energy over the past 12 months.

"Michelle has been the force behind the Women Driving Transport Careers initiative, designed our conference website and will be remain involved with TWAL, especially in the planned website upgrade.

"My heartfelt thanks to Di, Coralie and Michelle for the amazing achievements of TWAL over the past year, and to our volunteers throughout the year, especially Rebecca Coleman of the LBRCA who has edited our newsletter for the past 12 months and was our conference AV manager.

"Thanks also to our other volunteers throughout the year, in particular Tracey Boschetti, Rosie Cirillo, Rachel Hesse and Paula Sita."

At the AGM, TWAL also announced new sponsors Scania, Viva Energy, SRT Logistics, National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR), Westfund Health Insurance, Ron Finemore Transport and Chilled Australia Specialised Logistics

"We would also like to thank the employers of the board, with special mention to Oxford Cold Storage for the huge support given to the organisation over the past 12 months; none of this would be possible without their unswerving support," Brotherton says.

"As an association, we have achieved so much due the dedication of the board, the members, sponsors and volunteers and we are sure this will continue into 2019 and beyond as we have many exciting plans. 

"We are anticipating more interaction with Girl Guides Australia, the expansion of the Women Driving Transport Careers initiative and have many other plans, not least our 20th anniversary gala dinner set for November 16, 2019."
