I am the current Chair of the Board of the American Trucking Associations, the largest national trade association for the trucking industry. I’m also the second member of my family to be elected ATA chair; my father led the federation from 2002–2003. Recently, I spoke at the ATA Management Conference & Exhibition through a video message. In the video, (which can be viewed here) I share the story of how I first got involved in the trucking industry. From going trucking with my father at an early age, to helping with the family business in my pre-teen and teenage years, trucking was part of my life from a young age.
