Shane Ellison

CEO – Auckland Transport

Auckland’s transport challenges and the City Centre transformation


Shane Ellison was born and raised in the South Island, with whakapapa linking him to Ngai Tahu and Te Ati Awa.


He has over 20 years of experience in senior leadership roles in transport and infrastructure. From 2011, he held senior roles in Australia for Transdev, the world’s largest private operator of public transport. This included responsibility for Transdev’s ferry, bus, and light rail operations in New South Wales and Queensland. He was a key member of the consortium which secured the tender for Sydney’s $2.2 billion light rail system, which is currently under construction.


Since December 2017 Shane has been CEO at Auckland Transport. His key focus areas are the delivery of the region’s largest-ever infrastructure development programme, road safety, and organisational transformation around responsiveness and providing better customer experiences.


Please join us on Tuesday morning for what is sure to be an interesting presentation.
