Remembering the significant contribution of ANCAP’s inaugural CEO, Nicholas Clarke

It is with sadness that ANCAP acknowledges the passing of its inaugural Chief Executive Officer, Mr Nicholas Clarke.

Nicholas (Nick) Clarke served as ANCAP Chief Executive Officer from January 2012 to September 2015 following on from his long-term role as ANCAP Business Manager held from 2005.

Nick’s early involvement with ANCAP was pivotal and saw him work to establish ANCAP as an Incorporated entity in 2006 – bringing together the shared interests and objectives of a broad Australian and New Zealand membership.

Incorporation in 2006 was a critical milestone for ANCAP, with Nick’s determination consolidating member involvement, driving consumer recognition, and pushing industry in support of improvements to vehicle safety across Australia, New Zealand and the broader ASEAN region.

Nick was a fearless and passionate advocate for safer vehicles, with his work and genuine mentoring and leadership of others leading to the saving of many lives and reduction in injuries.

The foundation Nick established has allowed ANCAP to become the well-recognised and respected independent voice of vehicle safety it is today.

All Australian and New Zealand road users have benefited from Nick’s contribution.

Nick will be sadly missed by his wife, Linda, their children and grandchildren, and his colleagues and friends from ANCAP and the broader global NCAP families.

Vale Nicholas Clarke.
