Newly appointed NTRO leader plans sustainable future for Tasmania

NTRO’s new state business leader says she is excited to bring a new approach to problem solving in Tasmania

National Transport Research Organisation (NTRO) has appointed Vibeke Matthews as the new state business leader of Tasmania.

Bringing a wealth of experience in mobility technology, decarbonisation and sustainability, Matthews plans to work with different stakeholders to build upon Tasmania’s mantra of being an environmentally sustainable state. 

“Tasmanians have a strong environmental conscious, and with NTRO being at the leading edge with the National Material Science Laboratory in Melbourne and our strong knowledge in the use of sustainable materials, I hope to work in collaboration with councils, the government and industries to continue Tasmania’s passion to be green and sustainable,” Matthews says.

Having recently moved to Tasmania after spending more than a decade working for the Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads, Siemens and Austroads, Matthews says she has “fallen in love” with the community and is excited to understand and provide knowledge that benefits the state. 

NTRO CEO Michael Caltabiano is thrilled with Matthews’ appointment and looks forward to delivering successful transport outcomes for the Tasmanian community.

“I am confident that Vibeke will transform the NTRO offering and bring a relevant and excitingly new approach to problem solving in the infrastructure space for Tasmania,” he says.

“Across the road, rail, ports and airport fields Vibeke will be the key point of contact for the suite of NTRO services.”
