At a recent Colorado Motor Carriers Association (CMCA) annual meeting, Jeffrey Cummings, the president of Duffy Companies, was selected as the association’s chairman of the board for the upcoming year.
In this capacity he will lead CMCA, which represents over 650 companies that are either directly involved or affiliated with trucking and transportation in Colorado. Overall trucking related businesses employ almost 100,000 people within Colorado with an overall payroll exceeding $4.8 billon, according to CMCA.
“I am honored to have been chosen by CMCA’s Board to lead our industry and association during this important time when our state and industry face a number of challenges with the greatest being the current state and needs of our transportation system,” Cummings said. “CMCA has a long and distinguished history of service to Colorado which mirrors that of my own company, Duffy Crane and Hauling and I look forward to continuing that legacy.”
Greg Fulton, CMCA president, noted: “Jeff is an outstanding businessman, community leader, and family man. We are extremely fortunate to have someone with his skills and talent as well as his passion in leading our organization over the next year.”
