Frozen Food Express Industries has announced that Bill Webb, president and chief executive officer of the Texas Motor Transportation Association, will join its principal operating subsidiary, FFE Transportation Services, on July 31 as senior vice president for marketing operations and stakeholder value.

Prior to joining TMTA, Webb spent five years as director of resource development for FFEX. He was involved in the management of all driver recruiting and retention functions; all advertising, public, media and governmental relations; and the company’s quality control process.

“We’ve been talking to Bill about returning for some time now,” says Stoney M. Stubbs Jr., chairman and chief executive officer of Dallas-based FFEX. “We lost him in 1996 because we did not give him the opportunity to do what he knew he could do. He is a hard worker, has a very creative mind and is an excellent communicator. Now, as a member of our new senior management, he will be integral in helping us map the future of this company and getting it to where it needs to be.”

In 2005, Webb served as chairman of the board of the Trucking Profitability Strategies Conference at the Terry College of Business at the University of Georgia. In addition, he served as national chairman of the American Trucking Associations Executives Council. In the past, he served as chairman of the American Trucking Associations Driver Issues Task Force and has been active in both state and national industry affairs. Prior to joining TMTA, he served as the chairman of TMTA’s International Trade Advisory Committee and as chairman of the board of the TMTA Foundation from 1993-1996. At age 35, he was the youngest recipient of the TMTA Trucking Leader of the Year.

Webb, 45, is author of the book “Igniting The Blue Flame” and presents his leadership program throughout the nation. He also authors the “Leadership Initiative”, a weekly newsletter read by more than 2,000 transportation executives throughout the United States.
