Nick Leggett appointed CEO of RTANZ

October 29, 2021 9:17 am

We are pleased to inform members that Nick Leggett has been appointed as Chief Executive of the Road Transport Association of New Zealand (RTANZ). Nick is well known in the industry, having been the Chief Executive of Transporting New Zealand (formerly RTF) for the past three years. 

The appointment of a single CE to both organisations is an important step towards unifying our two organisations and providing the ‘one voice’ that has been requested by our membership. 

We must have a membership offering that meets your current and future needs as transport operators. To ensure this, we will be offering all members the opportunity to have a say in what that will look like over the coming weeks. 

While we work through the process of unifying our organisations, it’s business as usual for the moment at RTANZ and Simon Carson continues with day-to-day management responsibilities as Chief Operating Officer.

Please feel free to get in touch with either of us if you have any questions. 

Yours sincerely,

Warwick Wilshier                                                        Ian Emmerson

Chair, Transporting New Zealand                              Chair, Road Transport Association NZ
