Robert Berkstresser, owner of Lee Hi Travel Plaza and White’s Travel Center, has been elected chairman of the board for Natso, the national trade association for truckstops and travel plazas. He succeeds Scott Paulson, who will remain as chairman of Natso’s Steering Council Committee. Paulson owns Silco Oil.
“The new year brings new opportunities, and I couldn’t be more excited about the prospect of serving as NATSO’s Chairman,” Berkstresser said. “I look forward to tackling the challenges facing the truckstop and travel plaza industry and helping my fellow business owners and operators to succeed.”
Before purchasing Lee Hi Travel Plaza in 1981, Berkstresser owned a towing and road-service business. He purchased White’s Travel Center last year.
