A Johnstons Transport veteran and a Mountain Industries employee have been recognised at the New South Wales Industry Awards night.

Johnstons General Manager Mike Moylan, who has been involved in trucking for more than 40 years, received the Contribution to the Industry Award.

Colleen Rawson took home the Young Achiever of the Year Award, while former ATA NSW Manager Jill Lewis received the Transport Woman of the Year gong.

The annual awards ceremony is run by the NSW branch of the Australian Trucking Association (ATA NSW).

"I’d like to extend my congratulations to Mike, Jill and Colleen. The NSW trucking industry has a pool of talented and dedicated people, and to be recognised as the best in the industry is a real honour," Manager Jodie Broadbent says.

"The award winners receive more than a trophy – they take home the respect and acknowledgement of their peers.

Moylan was noted for his active work with Sydney Ports and stevedores to improve conditions for container transport operators.

Rawson has been with Mountain Industries since 1998 and holds a number of positions in the business, including administration support, in-house trainer for the accounts management system.

Rawson is also responsible for coordinating and authorising export approvals.

Lewis, who now leads the NSW Taxi Council, was noted for her work over more than four years as the manager of the ATA NSW.

The group says Lewis forged relationships with the NSW Government and developed the membership of the ATA NSW and provided members with "exceptional advice and service".
