The American Trucking Associations’ board has voted to renew the contract for association president and CEO Chris Spear for an additional five-year term.
“We are pleased to announce that the ATA Board has approved an extension of ATA President and CEO Chris Spear’s contract,” said ATA Chair Sherri Garner Brumbaugh in a press release. “Chris 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.”
Since becoming president and CEO in July 2016, Spear has achieved a record of success in advocating on behalf of the industry, both in the legislative and regulatory arena, and has dramatically increased the visibility of the organization, ATA officials said.
Spear has been a vocal advocate on Capitol Hill and in the media on the industry’s top issues, including infrastructure, lawsuit abuse and highway safety.
The American Trucking Associations is the nation’s leading organization representing the interests of the trucking industry.
