NASHVILLE, Tenn.— American Trucking Associations’ Technology & Maintenance Council announced Feb. 27 that Glen McDonald, maintenance director at Ozark Motor Lines of Memphis, Tennessee, has been elected 2017-2018 general chairman and treasurer during the organization’s annual meeting.

“Glen has been a model TMC member and an example of the type of professional standard our council strives to set," said Carl Kirk, ATA vice president of maintenance, information technology & logistics and TMC executive director.

"This is really the pinnacle of my career," McDonald told Transport Topics. "But I take it very seriously what we do to move the council's agenda forward. I just strive to be a good representative."

McDonald, director of maintenance for Ozark since 2003, said the changes he has seen over the years have been challenging.

"We came through all the engine mandates the 2004 [EPA] 710, greenhouse gas 2014, now 2017, all the electronics and the technology," McDonald said. "It's really exciting times right now. Everything's moving so fast."
