Geoff Allan’s position as the new CEO of Austroads after the retirement of Nick Koukoulas in April has been set in stone.

Allan was appointed Austroads chief operating officer in late 2019 following six years in the same position for the National Transport Commission (NTC).

"I have been impressed with the capability and dedication of the Austroads team and am looking forward to continue the work we have started to refocus our activities to solve complex transport problems for our members with highly practical and usable solutions," Allan says.

Austroads chair Neil Scales says Allan’s background in transport and experience working across Australasia has proven invaluable as Austroads’ COO and acting chief executive.

"Since joining Austroads in October last year, Geoff has fostered the development of a new strategic plan and been instrumental in reshaping the organisation to prepare it to deliver the new plan starting in July," Scales says.

Allan holds a PhD in public sector management, and has worked in high-profile roles for Queensland Corrective Services, Department of Communities (Queensland) and Queensland Environmental Protection Agency.
