| June 15, 2022

Launched in 2013, LEAD ATA provides up and coming trucking professionals with an exclusive opportunity to expand their knowledge and skills through the industry’s largest association

American Trucking Associations opened the application process for the industry’s premier leadership initiative, LEAD ATA.

“For a decade, LEAD ATA has been shaping the trucking industry’s next generation of leaders,” said ATA President and CEO Chris Spear. “The leaders who have participated in this program are now among the most influential leaders in ATA and in trucking.”

Launched in 2013, LEAD ATA – sponsored by DriverReach – provides up and coming trucking professionals with an exclusive opportunity to expand their knowledge and skills through the industry’s largest association.

Over the course of their year in the program, participants meet and learn from ATA executives and policy experts, gaining valuable insight into how ATA works with legislators to create a more efficient and profitable environment for trucking. They are offered important professional and media training that will allow them to become advocates on behalf of trucking.

“DriverReach is proud to continue sponsoring this premier program in its milestone tenth year,” said DriverReach Founder and CEO Jeremy Reymer. “LEAD ATA participants are the strong ambassadors trucking needs during this incredible time of growth in our industry. DriverReach and ATA share the value of recruiting and preparing trucking’s workforce, and LEAD ATA does just that.”

“By having a member of my company complete the program, I can confidently say that those who go through LEAD ATA not only come out of the program with valuable connections, but are also able to bring new perspectives to their roles and companies,” said ATA Chairman Harold Sumerford Jr, president and CEO of J&M Tank Lines Inc.
