The Arizona Trucking Association said Tuesday its board appointed Tony Bradley the group’s new CEO.
Bradley, who will also serve as executive director for the Arizona Transportation Education Foundation, succeeds Karen Rasmussen, who stepped down as CEO late last year.
Bradley, who has more than 15 years of experience in public policy, government relations and public affairs, previously worked in Washington as a staff member on the Senate Commerce Committee. He began his career in politics as a staff assistant for Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.).
He will be responsible for the association’s legislative and government advocacy, as well as its communications and management.
