The Hon Paul Toole MP, Tony LaRocca (SURA), Greg Abel (Nowra Coaches)

The winner of the 2019 NSW Achiever Award sponsored by SURA Australia Bus and Coach has more than 20 years’ experience in the bus and coach industry, taking a role with a bus operator that has seen considerable growth in their diverse operations.

Our achiever has a Senior Management position with their employer, being responsible for “all things” compliance related and operations for a large fleet.

During our winner’s time in this role, the industry has seen much greater emphasis on compliance through bus service contracts, the Bus Operator Accreditation Scheme, Workplace Health and Safety Legislation and Chain of Responsibility laws.

In addition to responsibilities for compliance and operations, this person has led the successful delivery of industry leading innovation projects, including an on demand transport pilot and an electric bus trial, which have highlighted both the talent and passion of our achiever.

This year’s achiever is known for “getting into the detail” and has been willing to provide feedback to BusNSW on a range of topics over many years.

Our winner holds a Certificate of Transport Management, several Work Health and Safety Accreditations, along with Training and Assessment qualifications.
