Major Trucking Association Launches Search For New President
Alexandria, VA – A major trucking association is once again searching for a new leader.
The Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) has announced it has formally formed a Search Committee to find a replacement for outgoing President John Lyboldt.
Lyboldt, who informed the officers of his decision to retire late last spring, will retire on April 1, 2022, TCA said in a release.
TCA has also contracted with an outside consultant who has worked in the industry for nearly four decades to coordinate a nationwide search.
“John has been instrumental in growing both TCA’s membership and the number of programs and services we provide to our members,” said TCA Chairman and D.M. Bowman, Inc. President Jim Ward. “He led our efforts to strengthen TCA’s role as the principal advocate for truckload carriers on Capitol Hill while continuing our focus on safety, carrier education, and TCA’s highly regarded driver recognition programs.”
TCA’s Board appointed Lyboldt president in December 2015.
During his five and a half years of leadership, TCA has grown to an all-time high record number of members.
The Search Committee has laid out a process and timeline for the recruitment effort and plans to issue a progress report during the upcoming TCA annual convention, set for September 25-28 in Las Vegas, NV.
TCA anticipates a naming a new president by early 2022.
