The American Trucking Associations on Thursday, May 12, announced that it has hired Jamie Hammons as the new regional vice president of membership for the Southeast.

“When we began looking for a new member of our team, I immediately thought of Jamie,” says David Brodie, senior vice president of membership. “I’ve know him for a long time from his work at the Georgia Motor Truck Association, where he was an extremely well-regarded figure in this industry. We welcome Jamie to our team and expect great things from him.”

Hammons spent nearly 15 years at GMTA before most recently serving as president of the Georgia Manufactured Housing Association. “I’m thrilled to come back to the trucking industry,” Hammons says. “Trucking really is the backbone of America, and I feeling I’m doing something important serving such an important industry.”

A native of southwest Missouri, Hammons has lived in the Atlanta area for 24 years. As a regional vice president, he’ll be responsible for ATA’s membership efforts in Alabama, Florida and Georgia.
