Executive Leadership Team

Executive Leadership Team

The Executive Leadership Team (ELT) assists the Director- General to deliver our strategic purpose: creating a single integrated transport network accessible to everyone. General business meetings are held weekly, and strategic business meetings are held on a monthly basis.

Senior Leadership Team

In addition to the ELT, the Director-General is supported by the Senior Leadership Team (SLT). SLT members are responsible for the development, implementation and review of key initiatives. 

They have decision-making authority and delegate responsibilities for action within their divisions. SLT members provide support and advice to the ELT by elevating information and issues required to shape strategic thinking and inform decision making.

Greater Leadership Team

Launched in 2014, the Director-General identified a cohort of leaders across TMR, known as the Greater Leadership Team (GLT). Throughout 2018–19, the group was engaged in a number of ways to directly enable and empower TMR’s leaders of level AO8/PO6 and above.

With several forums held for all GLT staff in 2018–19, the Director-General refreshed the format for 2018, hosting forums tailored for specific divisions. The forums were a face-to-face opportunity for the leadership team to hear TMR’s strategic direction and priorities, as well as showcase the achievements from within each division and across the department.

Additionally, through the format of a lecture series, the Director-General held four lectures on various topics in which he offered insight into his leadership journey, and knowledge and experience gained throughout his career. The lectures allowed GLT to ask questions of the Director-General on the tools and techniques he shared and seek guidance on their own career challenges.

Both the forums and the lecture series were offered over livestream facilities to enable regional staff to participate and interact in the sessions.
