A long-serving transport insurance manager has been rewarded for his contributions to the industry, being named to the National Road Transport Hall of Fame.
At a recent ceremony in Alice Springs, National Transport Insurance’s National Industry Affairs Manager Owen Driscoll was honoured with the plaudit.
Driscoll was recognised for his commitment to boosting safety standards through the analysis of accident data, and coordinating with government, associations and industry to achieve practical improvements.
Driscoll also established NTI’s National Truck Accident Research Centre.
“The recognition is humbling,” Driscoll says.
“I am privileged to have been associated with the road transport industry through my roles at NTI.”
NTI CEO Tony Clark says Driscoll’s commitment to the industry is inspiring.
“On behalf of everyone at NTI, I congratulate Owen on this achievement,” Clark says.
“We’re extremely proud of his work to improve Australian road safety and the way he has represented NTI in the trucking community.”
Truck importation pioneers Edwin Cameron and Max Winkless were also awarded the honour.
Almost 8000 members of the trucking industry travelling across Australia to be present at the event.
