New CEO at MTA South Australia

The Motor Trade Association (MTA) of South Australia has appointed Paul Unerkov as its new Chief Executive Officer. Mr Unerkov comes after the retirement of outgoing CEO John Chapman. Mr Chapman was CEO for eight years. MTA President Neville Gibb said Mr Chapman had taken a particular interest in the role the MTA could play in terms of its political advocacy as well as it’s training and education scheme.

“It has been a privilege to work with John,” said Mr Gibb. Mr Chapman said he was proud of his achievements at MTA and looked forward to taking on some new challenges in South Australia.

Incoming CEO, Paul Unerkov, brings with him over 25 years of senior management experience, including extensive automotive knowledge and achievements. 

Mr Unerkov said he was looking forward to leading the MTA into its next chapter. “The MTA is a respected association with an impressive history of providing the South Australia retail automotive sector a voice, especially with key public policies, and helping support its member businesses to reach their full potential,” said Mr Unerkov. “I am looking forward to working with the team and MTA members to drive the sector forward as a vital part of the South Australian economy.”

Mr Gibb welcomed Mr Unerkov and said the association looked forward to the knowledge, guidance and leadership the new CEO would bring. “Our industry, like the entire business community, continues to face many challenges, and with Paul’s guidance, the association and its staff will be able to continue to work for our members and help them successfully navigate the current economic climate.”
