The American Trucking Associations has hired Jeremy Kirkpatrick as the lobby’s new director of strategic communications. 

Kirkpatrick joins ATA from the National Restaurant Association where he was senior manager of digital and media relations. Prior to NRA, he spent time as a communications staffer for both Sens. Susan Collins (R-ME) and Joseph Lieberman (I-CT). 

“I am pleased that Jeremy is joining us at ATA, giving us another voice to tell the trucking industry’s story,” said ATA Executive Vice President for Communications and Public Affairs Sue Hensley. “Jeremy’s strong track record of success in the association world and on Capitol Hill will make an excellent addition to our communications team.” 

“I am excited to come to ATA and to work on behalf of the trucking industry,” Kirkpatrick said. “This industry has a tremendous story to tell, and I look forward to helping to advocate on behalf of our members.” 

A native of Connecticut, Kirkpatrick holds a Bachelor’s Degree from Providence College and currently resides in Washington.
