Allan Thornley has resigned as President of the National Road Transport Association (NatRoad) Board leaving to concentrate on his own business.

Allan has been a Director of NatRoad since 2010.

Allan said, “I have spent nine years on the Board. I have enjoyed the experience of serving the Australian road transport community as well as the friendship and hard work of all those who have served on the Board over that time. I would like to thank all members for the opportunity to serve them and wish NatRoad the very best for the future.”

“I would like to thank Allan for his leadership as President. Allan has been integral to the advances we have made as an Association over the last nine years,” said Scott Davidson.

“It is an honour to be appointed President of the National Road Transport Association. NatRoad and the Board have a significant role to play in ensuring the best outcomes for our members and the wider Australian road transport industry. I welcome the opportunity to lead and guide the organization in its continued pursuit of that mission.”
