CEO resigns from MTA-Q
A passionate advocate for Electric Vehicles, Motor Trade Association Queensland's Chief Executive Officer, Dr Brett Dale has announced his resignation after five years at the helm of the 91-year old organisation.
Dale has been integral to putting a spotlight on disruption and understands the need to stay ahead of the game to provide direction, leadership, and support to members.
With his vision, MTAiQ was established as Australia’s first automotive innovation hub in 2017, which is an eco-system that supports innovation for mobility and the motor trades.
“COVID-19 and 91 years of history has taught us that things are in constant motion and nothing is set in stone. What we do know, however, is that no matter which path the industry goes down, the association will be present to support and advocate for the best interest of our members. MTA Queensland board chair Paul Petersen says
“I thank Brett for his leadership through COVID-19 which has been outstanding, and he has left the organisation in excellent shape and we wish him well on his future endeavors.”
Rod Camm has been appointed by MTA-Q as Dales successor.
He has been leading organisations for much of his career and possesses a range of experiences as chief executive officer for government agencies, statutory bodies, government-owned corporations, the National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER) and private member-based organisations.
Camm is known for his leadership in industry engagement, advocacy, and tertiary education, and has worked with the OECD, UNESCO, the G20 Human Capital Taskforce and a broad range of economic reform bodies, boards and councils.
“I am excited to be leading the MTA Group through the next phase of recovery from COVID-19 and the innovation revolution that is sweeping our industry across the globe,” Camm says.
“Even though we are well positioned now, we must keep sharp focus on supporting our members, many of whom are yet to feel the full brunt of the effects of COVID-19,” he says.
