About Karl

For the past seven years I have been appointed General Manager - Engineering and Asset Management for Transport for Brisbane. In the role, I am primarily responsible for bus fleet and depot whole of life investment and asset management. This includes business case development, project funding, procurement, asset enhancements, project delivery and asset disposals.

I am responsible for a fleet of 1267 buses across 7 bus depots. The operation includes CNG, diesel and electric bus operations. While in the role, we have successfully introduced Brisbane's first dedicated electric bus service, the City Loop. I have also been comprehensively involved in the delivery of the all electric Brisbane Metro, including vehicle, depot and systems.

With the transition to zero emission from 2025, I am responsible for the leading the change for Transport for Brisbane's fleet, depots and operations. The transition to zero emission represents the greatest opportunity and challenge for the industry in more than 50 years. Ensuring future commercial arrangements are fit for purpose is critical for the ongoing success of the industry.
