The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance has appointed Collin B. Mooney as its new executive director, effective Jan. 11.
Mooney has been with CVSA for the past 13 years and has been the Alliance’s deputy executive director since 2010. He has been serving as acting executive director since September when Stephen A. Keppler resigned from the position.
“After conducting a comprehensive search for an executive director, I am pleased to announce, on behalf of the CVSA Executive Committee, we have selected Collin Mooney as the Alliance’s next executive director,” said CVSA President Major Jay Thompson with the Arkansas Highway Police. “After 13 years with CVSA, through his unwavering commitment to this Alliance and its mission, his deep industry knowledge, and his devotion to transportation safety, Collin has demonstrated he has what it takes to lead this organization and we are confident he will move us forward in achieving our strategic goals and mission.”
Mooney has 27 years of experience in the transportation safety industry, all of which have been dedicated to large truck and bus safety. Prior to joining CVSA, Collin’s public safety career began in Canada with the Saskatchewan Highway Transport Patrol working in various locations within the province. He also spent more than a decade as a transport officer with the Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Branch of Alberta Transportation (now Alberta Justice and Solicitor General).
“As a former transport officer and CVSA-certified inspector, I understand the many challenges our roadside inspectors face, each and every day, in order to ensure the safe and efficient movement of people and commerce throughout North America,” Mooney said. “I’m excited about the opportunity to continue with my dedicated service of promoting commercial motor vehicle safety, by working collaboratively with member jurisdictions, all levels of government, and the various industry stakeholders to lead the Alliance into the future.”
