Bill Graves, president and chief executive officer of the American Trucking Associations, has named Warren E. Hoemann as a senior vice president to oversee the organization’s seven councils and conferences. Hoemann, who served as deputy administrator for the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration under Annette Sandberg (2003-present), will assume his ATA post on Monday, Sept. 18.

“Our members and ATA have enjoyed a solid working relationship with Warren throughout the years and most recently as deputy administrator and acting administrator of FMCSA,” Graves says. “In this new position, Warren will provide leadership and greater visibility to the important work of our councils and conferences.”

ATA’s councils address federal and national issues that impact the trucking industry. They include the National Accounting and Finance Council; Safety and Loss Prevention Management Council; Security Council; and the Technology and Maintenance Council. ATA’s three affiliated conferences representing specific segments of industry are the Automobile Carriers Conference, Agricultural and Food Transporters Conference, and the Intermodal Motor Carriers Conference.

“I’m pleased to accept this opportunity with an organization that I have worked so closely with in the past,” Hoemann says. “I look forward to addressing the many challenges faced by the trucking industry.”

Former Department of Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta appointed Hoemann to FMCSA’s position of chief counsel in March 2003. In August of that year, he was named deputy administrator upon Sandberg’s confirmation. The veteran trucking industry safety and policy expert previously served as vice president of the California Trucking Association, where he oversaw the accounting, safety, seminars and training, public affairs and highway policy departments. Prior to working for CTA, Hoemann served as vice president of government relations for Yellow Corp., where he handled the less-than-truckload company’s political and legislative affairs in the United States, the District of Columbia and before Congress.
