RAC Foundation names top DfT civil servant as new director

The RAC Foundation has named Department for Transport director-general of roads Steve Gooding as its new director.

Gooding is expected to take up the post in May. He replaces professor Stephen Glaister CBE, who is retiring.

Gooding has been leading the transformation of the Highways Agency into Highways England and previously oversaw the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA), the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA), and the Vehicle Certification Agency (VCA). 

RAC Foundation chair Joe Greenwell CBE said: “We are delighted Steve Gooding has agreed to be our new director. His expertise, knowledge, experience and policy insights in the transport field are second to none and he will be a great successor to Stephen Glaister who has steered the Foundation so admirably over the past seven years.”

Gooding said: “I have been aware of the RAC Foundation and its excellent research work for many years, and to have the opportunity to join the organisation is a great opportunity, a privilege and a considerable responsibility building on the work of my predecessors.”
