The Trucking Association Executives Council announced Motor Transport Association of Connecticut President Joseph Sculley has been named national chairman with a one-year term.
“Joe has trucking in his blood and is a strong voice for the industry in Connecticut and beyond,” said John Lynch, ATA senior vice president of federation relations. “TAEC is in good hands with him as chairman.”
Since taking over as MTAC President in 2015, Sculley has been a leader in representing the trucking industry. In Connecticut he has successfully fought potentially harmful tolling efforts, improved the association’s drug testing and insurance programs and has served on the American Transportation Research Institute’s Research Advisory Committee. Prior to coming to MTAC, Sculley was director of government relations for the Truck Renting and Leasing Association. He succeeds Paul Enos, president and CEO of the Nevada Trucking Association.
“I am honored that my colleagues from across the country have elected me as TAEC Chairman for the coming year,” Sculley said. “I look forward to working with them, as well as with ATA, to advocate for our industry both in Washington and in state capitol buildings across the U.S. We represent an incredibly important industry, and as TAEC Chairman I look forward to helping lead our collective efforts to promote and protect the trucking industry.”
Under the umbrella of the American Trucking Associations’ Federation, TAEC is comprised of staff executives of state trucking associations, ATA and its affiliated conferences. The mission of TAEC is to promote the trucking industry, contribute to the improvement of the associations and organizations established to serve the trucking industry and to advance the professional stature and capabilities of the managers and executives of such associations.
