The Board of Directors of the Canadian Trucking Alliance reached into its current ranks by announcing Stephen Laskowski will become its next President and CEO on January 1st, 2018, after the alliance’s current chief retires.
The Board made its decision in Vancouver last month during the annual CTA fall meeting.
Laskowski, who is currently CTA’S Senior Vice President and David Bradley’s number two in charge, has over 22 years of experience representing the industry and is wellrespected in policy circles.
“It’s a great honour to represent this industry and do it on a national basis,” Laskowski told a meeting room full of CTA board members. “I love this industry. The CTA staff and I are very privileged to represent you. Moving forward, the staff and I are eager to work together as an alliance, with the provincial associations, and with each provincial board to represent carriers from coast to coast.”
Added CTA’S chairman, Gene Orlick, of Calgary-based Orlick’s Transport: “Steve has been groomed for the job and he is the ideal person to lead CTA into the future and maintain the outstanding level of service to the industry which CTA is known for. We should be very proud of him and the CTA staff.”
