The Truckload Carriers Association announced Friday that Brad Bentley resigned from his position as president of the organization, citing family obligations in his native Alabama.
Bentley plans to take time off before pursuing other opportunities in the trucking industry.
“It has been my distinct honor to serve as president of the Truckload Carriers Association for the past 10 months,” he said, “but the time has come for a new direction.”
Under the guidance of Chairman Keith Tuttle, TCA’s officers are in the process of assembling a search task force to find a replacement. The staff, under the leadership of executive vice president Bill Giroux and vice president Debbie Sparks, are committed to moving TCA’s mission forward.
Bentley was named TCA’s president in September 2014.
