WASHINGTON, DC – Dave Heller has been promoted to vice president – government affairs at the Truckload Carriers Association (TCA).

Heller has been TCA’s director of safety and policy since 2005. Before that, he spent seven years as manager of safety programs for the American Trucking Associations. He is an advisor to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s Entry Level Driver Training Advisory Committee and has been certified as a director of safety by the North American Transportation Management Institute.

 “This promotion is the next logical step toward ensuring that the interests of the truckload segment of the trucking industry have a clear and unified voice on [Capitol] Hill. Working collaboratively with all necessary parties, Dave will put forth initiatives that are advantageous to truckload, and he will monitor and keep us informed about policy and regulatory issues as they relate to us,” said Russell Stubbs, TCA chairman.

The announcement was made during TCA’s fall business meeting.
