Chief Executive

The Interim Chief Executive of Auckland Transport is Mark Lambert, previously Executive General Manager Integrated Networks.

Mark has overseen the transformation and evolution of the Auckland public transport service network over the last 15 years.

Mark’s role in Integrated Networks has enabled closer integration of transport infrastructure and asset development and management with public transport service delivery, AT being one of the few Public Transport Authorities that is accountable for both service design and delivery along with infrastructure development and management.

Mark studied Construction Engineering and Management at Loughborough University in the UK. He then spent 10 years in construction and infrastructure project management in the UK and Europe on various public and private sector projects, including public private partnership procurements. Mark moved to New Zealand in 2003, working for Ernst & Young before joining Auckland local government in public transport.
