Curt J. Shewchuk, director of corporate protective services for Con-Way Transportation Services, was named Security Professional of the Year by the American Trucking Associations. Shewchuk received the award Tuesday, Oct. 4 at ATA’s Safety and Loss Prevention Management Council conference in Miami.

According to the ATA, the award is presented to the security professional who has demonstrated the ability to design, introduce and manage a successful security program that sets the bar for extraordinary performance. Shewchuk — a 32-year law enforcement and security veteran — is responsible for the management of all worldwide security initiatives for CNF’s two companies, Con-Way and Menlo Worldwide Logistics.

“Curt’s contributions to both CNF and the industry more than qualify him to receive this award,” said David S. McClimon, president of Con-Way. “Many of the security programs used in the transportation and logistics industry today can be attributed to his innovative thinking and approach to security. He was instrumental in the enrollment growth of the ATA’s Highway Watch program and has worked closely on initiatives with the FBI and Department of Homeland Security Information Network for Critical Infrastructure Transportation.”

Shewchuk is based in Chester, Va.
