American Trucking Associations announced it has promoted four current vice presidents to the senior vice president level.
ATA President Bill Graves said those elevated are: Chief Economist Bob Costello; Elisabeth Barna, in charge of communications and public affairs; Controller Rusty Duckworth, and Kay Perkins, in charge of human resources and operations.
“ATA has a talented group of staff dedicated to the priorities and success of our members and the overall trucking industry,” Graves said. “The promotion of these individuals is well-deserved and a reflection of their success in their respective positions and commitment to our vital industry.”
Costello joined ATA 17 years ago this month, after working for economic consulting firm Joel Popkin & Co. He splits his time between ATA’s headquarters in Arlington, Virginia, where he compiles, analyzes and publishes data on trucking, and a rigorous travel schedule making presentations to industry groups.
