Montana trucking executive Ray Kuntz is slated to become the next chairman of the American Trucking Associations.

Kuntz, CEO of Helena, MT-based Watkins & Shepard Trucking Inc., will serve a 16-month term as ATA’s chairman. He will succeed Patrick Quinn, CEO & co-chairman of U.S. Xpress Enterprises, who has held the position since October 2005.

During his term as chairman, Kuntz said he aims to focus on several key issues: highway funding, environmental and tax policy issue, along with tort reform and finding ways to attract new drivers to the industry.

Normally ATA officers hold one-year terms, but both Quinn and Kuntz served longer to fill the term of Mac McCormick, who died in a plane crash last year.
