Bison’s Rob Penner named TCA chairman
NASHVILLE, TN - Rob Penner, president and Chief Executive Officer of Bison Transport, has been named chaiman of the Truckload Carrier Association (TCA) for the 2017-2018 term. Penner, the second Canadian to ever hold a chairman position with the TCA, took the stage at the association's annual convention in Nashville, Tennessee, and began by cracking a joke that he'd be the first chairman in a long time without an accent. "It is truly a privilege to serve you all as the chairman of the TCA," said Penner. "Eight or nine years ago I got a call from TCA past chairman Kevin Burch, to see if I had any interest in becoming an officer here. This association and the opportunity to get involved and to know many of you has provided tremendous value to me personally, as well as to our company, Bison Transport."
