American Trucking Associations promoted Boyd Stephenson to vice president of supply chain security and operations.
Stephenson will be ATA’s primary subject expert on security, cross-border affairs and hazardous materials safety. He will also function as the staff liaison to the association’s policy committees dealing with these issues.
He has been with the association for eight years, holding a variety of positions within ATA’s policy department, focusing on licensing issues and hazardous materials safety and security.
“Boyd has demonstrated tremendous knowledge about important security and related issues involving the trucking industry, so I’m pleased to be able to announce his promotion to this expanded role,” said Dave Osiecki, ATA executive vice president. “Cross-border issues, security and hazardous materials transportation are all critical subjects for our members, and I have confidence that Boyd will continue to be a valuable resource for them as our industry addresses them.”
