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.”

Awards.

The Trail­blazer of the Year award rec­og­nizes a busi­ness that is a true trend­set­ter in its sec­tor. The award is given to a com­pany that has demon­strated out­stand­ing lead­er­ship within the com­pany and the mar­ket and has set the stan­dards for orig­i­nal­ity, qual­ity and suc­cess­ful man­age­ment.

Truckright’s cloud-based work­force por­tal en­com­passes an Ap­pli­cant Track­ing Sys­tem (ATS), au­to­mated safety & com­pli­ance tools and e-learn­ing to help fos­ter a cul­ture of en­gaged em­ploy­ees.

“We are pleased to see that fleets across the coun­try are say­ing that our sys­tem has dra­mat­i­cally changed the way their com­pa­nies com­mu­ni­cate,” said Truckright co-founder, pres­i­dent and CEO Dirk Ku­par.

Within the com­pany it­self, Truckright’s cul­ture is geared to­wards in­no­va­tion with em­ploy­ees en­cour­aged to use their voice, pro­vide in­put and make sugges­tions, even if it is not re­gard­ing the pro­ject they are di­rectly work­ing on. This cul­ture re­sults in a more ful­some and in­no­va­tive prod­uct and a truly en­gaged work­force.
