Meet Rod

Rod has been involved in the Commercial Passenger Vehicle Industry for over 30 years. Beginning as a Taxi driver in the bustling streets of Victoria to becoming the president of the Commercial Passenger Vehicles Association. It was then Rod found his passion in fighting for the rights of the Taxi industry, fighting for their safety and fair treatment.

In 2018, after the illegal entry of Uber, Rod and his friend and business partner, Andre, decided to take their fight to Parliament. In November 2018, Rod was successfully elected into the legislative Council of Victoria representing the Transport Matters party. He fought for 4 hard years for the rights of the transport sector as well as many other issues close to his heart. Although not successful in 2022, Rod still fights for the rights of vulnerable workers.
