RHA Chief Executive steps down

Richard Burnett, CEO of the RHA has tendered his resignation to the Road Haulage Association Board of Directors. He has worked for the RHA for the past seven years and during that time he has transformed the organisation, working tirelessly for our membership and the wider industry.

During his tenure, the RHA’s membership has grown significantly and its profile as an association has increased considerably.

RHA National Chairperson Moreton Cullimore said: “On behalf of the RHA Board of Directors and all the RHA employees I would like to thank him for everything he has achieved and wish him the very best for his future endeavours.”

In response Richard Burnett said: “After seven unforgettable years as the RHA’s Chief Exec I have decided it is time for me to step down. It’s been a challenging time for so many reasons and I have given all my energy to representing our members and the industry as a whole, but now feel ready for a new challenge.

“I’m incredibly proud to have led the transformation of the RHA during my time here, creating the strong and diverse association we see today. None of this would have been possible without the dedication of the RHA staff and support of our members. Thank you.”

Richard will be leaving the organisation on 31 December 2021.
