Career summary

Following various leadership roles in the VicRoads Registration and Licensing section, Victor joined the VicRoads Heavy Vehicle Policy section in 2011 and was responsible for a range of heavy vehicle policy reform initiatives including the setting of Victorian heavy vehicle registration charges, the management of heavy vehicle registrations under the NHVR and the assessment of the Hume Freeway for High Productivity Freight Vehicle (HPFV) access.

Building off the experience of the Hume Freeway HPFV assessment, Victor took the lead role within VicRoads for the assessment, gap analysis and development of Victoria’s existing and future HPFV High Mass networks. In this capacity, findings from the assessments and gap analysis were used to develop business cases for funding the removal of HPFV network constraints.

Following approx. 2 years as Advantia’s General Manager, in May 2020, Victor acquired Advantia and has since help grow the team and their capabilities to deliver a broad range of projects across network utilisation, heavy vehicle performance and safety, PBS and analysis of new generation heavy vehicles.
