ATA awaits nominations for Craig Roseneder Award

Melham urges industry to help recognise quiet achievers of fleet maintenance


Nominations are open for this year’s Craig Roseneder Award, which recognises technical and maintenance excellence in the trucking industry’s workshops.

Sponsored by Castrol Vecton, the award is open to any individual who works full time as a workshop manager or mechanic in the Australian trucking industry for a trucking company, supplier or commercial workshop.

ATA CEO Chris Melham says the trucking industry was privileged to have exceptionally talented, dedicated professionals in workshops right across the country.

"Fleet maintenance is about more than keeping the engine running. For our Craig Roseneder Award nominees, it’s a passion and a challenge to make sure their fleet is as safe and efficient as possible," Melham notes.

"Not only do these people keep their vehicles in top shape, they’re often known to improve on them with safety innovations they’ve conceived and developed in their own time.

"Though highly regarded, these people are often the quiet achiever in the workplace.

"I encourage members of the industry to help us recognise these exceptional people by nominating them for the 2015 Craig Roseneder Award."

The winner of the 2015 Craig Roseneder Award will receive a trip to the US city of Nashville, to attend the American Trucking Associations’ 2016 Technology and Maintenance Council annual meeting and Transportation Technology Exhibition, courtesy of Castrol Vecton.

All nominations must be received by Monday, September 7.

Nominees must have at least five years of experience in their field, and self-nominations are not accepted.
