Trucker Buddy International has named Alan Welborn as its new executive director after Randy Schwartzenburg, the outgoing executive director, announced his retirement.

TBI connects truckers with elementary school students as pen pals to introduce them to trucking. Welborn has 17 years of experience in the trucking industry, with 15 years in management and sales. He will oversee TBI’s operations, management and fundraising.

Schwartzenburg was involved with Trucker Buddy from the time it was created and spent 25 collective years with the organization. He served as executive director for nine of those years.

“We have been fortunate to have Randy Schwartzenburg’s expertise and hard work directing us for the past nine years,” Welborn said. “He has dedicated his heart and soul over the years to make Trucker Buddy the best program he can and he will be missed.”
