MTM Vice President

Thank you to Brent Hutto and Alan Alberto of Truckstop for opening up the path for me to spontaneously hop from The Mid-America Trucking Show  in Louisville to the Truckload Carriers Association’s annual convention at the Gaylord Opryland in Nashville. From highway and regulatory policy meetings to the large and small carrier panels, the experience was invaluable.

There also were some amazing and inspiring featured speakers, including demographer and author Ken Gronbach and “Mr. Wonderful” Kevin O’Leary. The experience was truly invaluable. The information shared on industry growth, challenges, trends, and a future snapshot of the workforce from a global perspective was energizing.  

MTM is now a proud member of the TCA, thanks to TCA’s Eric Rivard!

Here are some images from the event.
