“I’m honored to have been chosen by my peers in this great industry to represent America’s motor carriers, drivers, independent contractors and employees,” England said. “The last few years have been difficult for our industry and our nation, but I’m confident that regardless of our challenges, trucking and ATA will continue to lead the country toward economic recovery.
England takes over for Barbara Windsor, president & CEO of Hahn Transportation Inc., New Market, Md.
“It has been an incredible experience serving as ATA’s chairman this past year,” Windsor said. “I’d like to thank my fellow ATA members for the opportunity and wish Dan well; though I’m confident he’ll do an outstanding job as chairman.”
England said he is ready for the challenge that lies ahead.
“We’re faced with a possible change to the hours-of-service rule, a long overdue highway bill and a mounting stack of regulations on top of a sluggish economic recovery,” England said. “In order to meet these challenges, we need to speak with one voice, remembering that there is more that unites our industry than divides it.”
“Dan is the quintessential trucker. He is a credit to his family, his business and his industry,” ATA president & CEO Bill Graves said. “ATA is lucky to have Dan as our ambassador for the coming year, just as we were lucky to have Barbara Windsor represent us this past year.”
