Rail Express --> WA appoints new director general of Transport

West Australian minister for transport Dean Nalder has appointed Richard Sellers as the new director general of the Department of Transport.

Sellers, appointed for a five-year term, will take up the role on September 12.

He will replace Reece Waldock, who retired on July 29.

Sellers will concurrently hold the positions of director general of the Department of Transport, commissioner for Roads WA, and chief executive officer of the Public Transport Authority.

“Key responsibilities will include setting the strategic direction of transport in WA, shaping the development of a number of major integrated transport plans and leading the implementation of WA’s transformational capital projects,” Nalder said on August 18.

Sellers will move from his current position as director general at the Department of Mines and Petroleum, where he has been since June 2009.

Prior to that role, he was the executive director of Minerals and Energy and the Department of Primary Industry, Fisheries and Mines in the Northern Territory.

Sellers holds a Bachelor of Applied Science Biology, a Graduate Diploma in education, and a Master of public policy and management.

Nalder said the new appointee was a highly skilled public servant.

“He has well established credentials as an outstanding organisational leader, with the ability to implement innovative and significant reforms,” the minister said.

“The transport portfolio is one of the largest and most challenging in the state.

“Mr Sellers’ track record has him well placed to deliver further improvements to our integrated transport network in WA over future years.”
