American Trucking Associations has promoted Rusty Duckworth to chief financial officer, adding to the new leadership team being assembled by new ATA President and CEO Chris Spear.
Duckworth has worked for ATA since 1999 in variety of roles in the accounting and finance department, most recently as senior vice president and controller.
"Part of our mission is to return value for the investment our members make when they join ATA," said Spear. "Rusty has been an excellent steward of ATA's budget and finances in several roles with the organization, and I'm pleased that he will serve as our new CFO."
Duckworth is the fifth member of the new leadership team that Spear has assembled since replacing Bill Graves in July, joining COO and executive vice president of industry affairs Elisabeth Barna, executive vice presidents Bill Sullivan and Sue Hensley and general counsel Jennifer hall.
He earned a bachelor’s degree in accounting from the University of Maryland and was licensed as a certified public accountant in 2002.
"I'm pleased that with Rusty in his new role, we now have a complete management team that is ready to strongly position ATA for the future," said Spear.
