Martyn and Farrell in hon­ours list

Australian Transport News - - News -

Long- serv­ing in­dus­try rep­re­sen­ta­tive Trevor Martyn and Bur­rum­but­tock Hayrun­ners founder Bren­dan Farrell were both recog­nised for their con­tri­bu­tions in the Queen’s Birth­day Hon­ours List in June.

Martyn and Farrell were both awarded a Medal ( OAM) of the Or­der of Aus­tralia for their re­spec­tive con­tri­bu­tions to the road trans­port in­dus­try and pri­mary in­dus­try.

Vic­to­rian Trans­port As­so­ci­a­tion CEO Peter An­der­son says Martyn’s con­tri­bu­tion to the trans­port in­dus­try over more than 50 years, in­clud­ing four years as VTA pres­i­dent from 2002- 05 and as a di­rec­tor of the Aus­tralian Truck­ing As­so­ci­a­tion from 2002-10, was enor­mous and self­less.

An­der­son also notes Martyn’s six years as chair­man of Driver Ed­u­ca­tion Cen­tre Aus­tralia ( DECA) from 2007-2012, and time as pres­i­dent of the Na­tional Bulk Tanker As­so­ci­a­tion, and chair of Global Air Am­bu­lance for four years. Farrell, who re­ceives his OAM for ser­vice to pri­mary in­dus­try, caught na­tional at­ten­tion dur­ing the decade for or­gan­is­ing truck­loads of hay to farm­ers in drought-af­fected parts of New South Wales and Queens­land.

In the wider in­fra­struc­ture, trans­port and lo­gis­tics realm, Jock Mur­ray be­comes an Of­fi­cer ( AO) in the gen­eral di­vi­sion of the Or­der for dis­tin­guished ser­vice to the trans­port, in­fra­struc­ture and freight in­dus­tries,

In Western Aus­tralia, Reece Wald­cock was made a mem­ber of the Or­der of Aus­tralia ( AM) in the gen­eral di­vi­sion for his ser­vice to pub­lic ad­min­is­tra­tion.
