Australian Transport News - - News | Inside The Industry -

Heavy Ve­hi­cle In­dus­try Australia (HVIA) pres­i­dent Peter Lang­wor­thy has re­signed from the Heavy Ve­hi­cle In­dus­try Australia board, the or­gan­i­sa­tion has in­formed mem­bers.

Lang­wor­thy has been pres­i­dent since Oc­to­ber 2016 and a di­rec­tor since 2015. Vice pres­i­dent Nathan Usher will ful­fil all du­ties of the pres­i­dent un­til an ex­tra­or­di­nary gen­eral meet­ing of mem­bers is sched­uled by the board.

HVIA chief ex­ec­u­tive Brett Wright says Lang­wor­thy’s con­tri­bu­tion had been par­tic­u­larly valu­able through the tran­si­tion to a na­tional as­so­ci­a­tion.

“Peter has been a gen­er­ous con­trib­u­tor to our or­gan­i­sa­tion and a wise coun­sel for many years,” Wright says.

“We will greatly miss his pas­sion, his strate­gic vi­sion and his in­sight­ful per­spec­tive.

“More than any of that, he is a man of great char­ac­ter and in­tegrity whom I’ve been hon­oured to work with. We all wish Peter the very best.”

HVIA notes Lang­wor­thy re­cently stepped down as Dana Australia MD.
