ST. JOHNS, Nfld. — Gord Peddle of D.D. Transport was elected chairman of the Atlantic Provinces Trucking Association (APTA) on Oct. 25; marking the first time a Newfoundland resident has headed the associations executive.
The president of the Mt. Pearl, Nfld.-based carrier was joined by a number of new elected officials at the associations annual general meeting held from Oct. 24 to 27 in St. Johns, Nfld.
Peddle replaces Vaughn Sturgeon as chair of the APTA.
I had an interesting, but enjoyable two years and wouldnt have missed it for anything, said Sturgeon, during the AGM. We had and are still having some border issues and we need to keep lobbying the government for changes to that.
Sturgeon remains in the APTA executive board as past chair, while the rest of the executive is made up of: Shane Esson of Keltic Transportation, first vice-chair; Jean St. Onge, second vice-chair; and Vicki McKibbon, secretary-treasurer.
All directors are chosen for a two-year term.
