Celebrating leadership, talent and innovation

Nominations for the 2023 HVIA National Awards have opened today.  

HVIA Chief Executive Todd Hacking said HVIA’s awards showcase the abundant talent from the length and breadth of Australia’s heavy vehicle industry.

“HVIA’s annual awards present a valuable opportunity for HVIA members to celebrate the achievements of their organisations and the individuals who inspire their success,” Mr Hacking said.

“The five categories include awards recognising individual initiative, growth and performance, and others that acknowledge your company’s collaboration and achievements across teams.”

“The 2023 HVIA National Awards are a great opportunity to recognise those efforts and the amazing outputs and outcomes that they have produced.

“Last year we saw our next generation honoured through two awards: the National Apprentice of the Year Award, sponsored by Wurth Australia, and won by Hunter Tapping from Brown and Hurley;

“The impressive Thomas Baggaley of CMV Truck & Bus was presented with the Peter Langworthy Future Leader Award.

“Amongst the company awards, Penske Australia took out the Community Leadership Award, for their Outback Futures program.

“The Product Innovation Award sponsored by NTI was won by Knorr-Bremse for their iMass system.

“And the Safety Innovation Award was won by Scania Australia for their Securing the Future of Workshop Safety program.

“Having seen so such an abundance of innovation on display at this year’s Brisbane Truck Show, I am sure we will see a similarly impressive array of people, products and programs held up for recognition this year.

“I encourage all HVIA members to join us in celebrating the dedication, innovation and collaboration that sits behind every success,” Mr Hacking said.

“We strongly encourage the many new HVIA member companies to get amongst the nominations this year – it is a great way of introducing yourselves to your peer members and the industry at large.

“The nomination process is not difficult, and more importantly, it is time very well invested.”

The awards portal is set up to allow nominations to be started and completed over the course of the next few weeks, before nominations close Friday, 25 August 2023.
