The American Trucking Associations Board of Directors voted Tuesday to renew the contract of association president and CEO Chris Spear for an additional five-year term.
ATA Chair Sherri Garner Brumbaugh, president and CEO of Garner Transportation Group, noted that Spear "has proven himself as an exceptional leader of the ATA during the past five years, elevating the organization and providing tremendous vision for our industry at a critical time. We look forward to how he will chart the course for the association in the years ahead.”
ATA is the nation’s leading organization representing the interests of the trucking industry. Since being installed President and CEO in July 2016, Spear has been an advocate on the industry’s top issues, including infrastructure, lawsuit abuse and highway safety.
“I’m grateful for the confidence and support of the ATA Board, and I’m excited to take on the challenges that lie ahead,” said Spear. "I am honored to work on behalf of this incredible industry, and I look forward to continuing to strongly advocate for trucking, as well as grow ATA’s impact and influence.”
