SAN DIEGO — Randy Guillot, president of Triple G Express Inc., has been elected chairman of American Trucking Associations.
Triple G Express is a trucking company based in Louisiana. Guillot formally succeeded outgoing Chairman Barry Pottle, CEO of Pottle’s Transportation, at ATA’s Management Conference & Exhibition on Oct. 8.
“I’m thrilled and excited to be the chairman of the board,” Guillot said during a press conference. “I’m looking forward to this year.”
Guillot pledged to champion tort reform, infrastructure and trade, objectives that align with the goals ATA President Chris Spear mentioned in his state of the industry remarks Oct. 7. Guillot said he was particularly excited to address tort reform, and anticipates a lot of activity on that issue this year.
Previously, Guillot has held leadership roles with the Louisiana Motor Transport Association, ATA’s Intermodal Motor Carriers Conference and the North American Chassis Pool Cooperative.
The board also elected Sherri Garner Brumbaugh, president and CEO of Garner Trucking, Findlay, Ohio, as ATA first vice chairman; and Harold Sumerford Jr., CEO of J&M Tank Lines Inc., Birmingham, Ala., as ATA second vice chairman.
Also elected were Dan Van Alstine, president and chief operating officer of Ruan Transportation Management Systems, and Andrew Boyle, co-president of Boyle Transportation, Billerica, Mass., as ATA vice chairmen.
