"These individuals have proven over the years to be tremendous servants to our industry at the state level and at our affiliates," said incoming ATA Chairman Phil Byrd, president of Bulldog Hiway Express, Charleston, S.C. "We are so lucky to have so many hard-working industry leaders that help make up the ATA federation and we're thankful to them for all their hard work and dedication."
This year ATA honored seven executives with a combined 105 years of experience at today's Advocacy and Government Affairs Luncheon:
