The Executive Council and Secretariat of the Victorian Transport Association extends its sincerest sympathies to family, friends and colleagues of Alex MacLeod, who passed away recently aged 90.

"Alex was a staunch supporter of the then VRTA for over 40 years and served as a member of the Executive Council for over a decade from the late 1980s through the early 1990s," said VTA CEO, Peter Anderson.

"He was widely respected by the industry, VTA membership and Transport Workers Union, who will remember him as a gentleman that served the industry with distinction and humility.

"Throughout his distinguished career Alex was Chairman of the Port of Geelong Authority, Chairman of the Geelong Economic Board, Managing Director of TransWest, General Manager of Blakistons, and a Manager with Albion Reid/Boral where he commenced in the industry aged only 14. Alex was also a Consultant to the World Bank and on Road Transport Initiatives in China and was Chairman of the Geelong Independent.

"Alex is survived by his wife Helen, to whom we extend our deepest condolences."
