The National Motor Freight Traffic Association’s board of directors announced Tuesday, Dec. 18, that it has accepted William W. Pugh’s resignation as NMFTA’s executive director. Pugh served with NMFTA for more than 32 years, holding the positions of executive director and general counsel.
Pugh recently spearheaded the establishment of a new organizational structure and procedures, allowing NMFTA to continue to maintain and develop the National Motor Freight Classification in light of the Surface Transportation Board’s termination of antitrust immunity for the National Classification Committee’s classification-making activities.
“We recognize Bill’s unfaltering commitment as well as his excellent work accomplished during his extensive tenure with NMFTA,” the board said in a prepared statement. “We regret to lose Bill’s contributions to the advancement of NMFTA and the motor carrier industry as a whole. We want to extend Bill the best in all his future endeavors.”
