We congratulate fellow member Brian Negus, who became the first
Australian inducted to the Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) World Congress Hall of Fame at the recent ITS World Congress in Singapore.
The award recognises industry professionals who personify the highest standards of leadership and help to drive the ITS industry forward.
“I am deeply honoured to be recognised by my international ITS colleagues. However, I see this as much more than a personal award. I firmly believe that this award recognises the leading role that Australia has played for many years in advancing the adoption of smart technologies to improve transport”, said Brian.
Hajime Amano, Secretary-General of ITS Asia Pacific said “With a career spanning more than 50 years, Brian Negus is one of Australia’s most respected and influential transport and mobility leaders.”
A director of ITS Australia since 2007 and president for six years, Brian is highly regarded for his longstanding strong contributions to transport, his commitment to intelligent transport initiatives, and his role in advocating for, and delivering ITS solutions in the transport sector.
Brian also represents ITS Australia on the ITS World Congress Board. His distinguished career spans both the government and private sectors including General Manager Public Policy with the Royal Automobile Club Victoria (RACV); Deputy Director of Public Transport in Victoria; Regional Director of VicRoads; and General Manager of Port Planning at the Melbourne Port Corporation. In 2018 he was awarded the Max Lay Lifetime Achievement Award in 2018 and named Ambassador and honorary life member.
