On Australia Day 2017, Dr John Yeaman PhD, founder of Pavement Management Services and currently the Queensland Main Roads Chair of Pavement Engineering at the University of the Sunshine Coast was acknowledged for his service to the community and industry and appointed as a Member (AM) in the General Division of the Order of Australia.
In part his citation reads:
