Sandberg Appointed to ATRI Board
Annette Sandberg, a former administrator of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, has been appointed to the board of directors for the American Transportation Research Institute.

Sandberg is CEO of TransSafe Consulting. She also served as deputy administrator of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and as chief of the Washington State Patrol, where she was the first woman to lead a state police agency. Sandberg was the nation's second FMCSA administrator, serving from 2003 to 2006.

“Annette’s extensive experience and leadership in advancing the trucking industry’s safety agenda is a perfect complement to ATRI’s mission of improved industry safety and productivity,” said ATRI Chairman Steve Williams, CEO of Maverick Transportation. “We are fortunate to have her join our board of industry CEOs and know that the trucking industry will benefit from her involvement in ATRI’s research.”
