The National Transport Commission (NTC) has announced the appointment of Dr Gillian Miles as its new CEO and commissioner.

Miles is a former Victorian government senior executive, most recently heading up Transport for Victoria. 

She also has previous executive experience at the City of Greater Geelong and the Transport Accident Commission.

NTC chair Carolyn Walsh says the appointment of Miles has come at an important time with the NTC undertaking a number of significant reforms in land transport.

"Innovation, change management and a strategic mindset were front of mind for this appointment, particularly as the NTC continues to make major progress on several landmark transport reforms, including the regulation of automated vehicles and a review of the heavy vehicle national law," Walsh says.

"I’m confident that Gillian’s wealth of knowledge and experience is well suited to leading the NTC through a period of significant change across the land transport sector."

Walsh also acknowledged the contribution of acting CEO Dr Geoff Allan following the departure of Paul Retter in late 2018.

Miles will commence in the role next week. 

Victorian Transport Association (VTA) CEO Peter Anderson gives the appointment its strong endorsement.

"The Victorian Transport Association is thrilled with the appointment of Gillian Miles as CEO and Commissioner of the NTC," Anderson says.

"Dr Miles brings significant transport experience to the role, and her appointment comes at an important time for the NTC as it leads as it leads the important review of National Heavy Vehicle Law.

"The VTA has enjoyed a long and productive relationship with the NTC and we look forward to building on this through working collaboratively with Dr Miles and her team.

"We wish Dr Miles every success in this new and exciting role."
