Truckload Carriers Association President Retires – Fleet Management
The Truckload Carriers Association has officially formed a search committee to find a replacement for outgoing president John Lyboldt.
Lyboldt, who informed officers of his decision to retire at the end of last spring, will retire on April 1, 2022.
TCA also contracted with an outside consultant who has worked in the industry for nearly four decades to coordinate research nationwide, officials said in a press release.
“John has been instrumental in increasing the number of CAW members and the number of programs and services we provide to our members,” said Jim Ward, CAW President and DM Bowman. “He led our efforts to strengthen TCA’s role as the leading advocate for truck carriers on Capitol Hill while continuing to focus on safety, carrier training and TCA’s highly regarded driver recognition programs. “
The search committee has set a process and timeline for the recruiting effort and plans to release a progress report at the next TCA annual convention, Truckload 2021: Las Vegas, scheduled for September 25-28. His goal is to have the new president of TCA on board by the first of the year and to begin the transition of the leadership of the staff at that time.
TCA’s board of directors appointed Lyboldt president in December 2015, and during his five and a half years of leadership, the association has achieved a record number of members, including a 6% gain since the start of the year. Today, TCA member carriers operate a total of 210,000 trucks and generate more than $ 38 billion in annual revenue per truck.
“John has been a firm hand on the wheel during his tenure as president,” Ward said. At the worst of the pandemic, he guided TCA outreach to inform and educate its members about COVID-19, keep them informed of regulatory waivers and other essential information to keep their trucks on the road. We wish him the best in pursuing his retirement goals and are confident that we will recruit the right person who can continue to grow TCA and expand our brand on the advocacy front while adding new services that benefit to our members. “
