Bringing Associations Together To Boost Performance


Lauren Streifer appointed CEO of PTAANZ

The Public Transport Association Australia New Zealand (PTAANZ) is delighted to announce their new Chief Executive Officer Lauren Streifer.

PTAANZ Chair Sally Stannard says Ms Streifer brings extensive experience and expertise in the sector, with a proven track record of driving innovation, growth, and effective partnerships globally.

“Lauren shares our passion for emerging professionals and with her leadership, we are confident that PTAANZ will achieve new levels of success, championing public transport, helping our members to thrive and building collaboration across Australia, New Zealand and internationally.

“We are thrilled to welcome Lauren to our team.”

Previously, Ms Streifer served as Chief Executive at advisory firm Streifer&Co, where she built collaboration and advised leaders across Australia, the US, and Europe in the transport, finance, and technology sectors. She also served as Executive Director at Roads Australia, doubling membership and driving industry engagement. Ms Streifer joins PTAANZ at a pivotal time for the association and the public transport sector.

“Australia and New Zealand’s public transport industry is evolving into a more multimodal, integrated approach to mobility services, at the same time as the general public is becoming more aware of the massive impact public transport can have on reducing carbon emissions,” Ms Streifer said.

“I’m excited to continue growing PTAANZ’s contribution to championing the future of sustainable mobility in our region.”

The PTAANZ Board of Directors also thanked Sue Chan for her work as interim CEO.

“Sue has made a highly valuable contribution to PTAANZ over the last nine months, leading the PTAANZ team through a time of transition as we strengthened our organisation and bolstered our membership benefits.

“Sue has delivered new member offerings, engaged new members, delivered a number of highly successful events and leaves the association in a strong position to continue delivering our important work,” Ms Stannard said.
