TORONTO, Ont. — The Ontario Trucking Association (OTA) Education Foundation has added two new directors to its ranks.
Bert Clay, vice-president of sales and marketing with Durabody Industries, is the former head of Trailmobile Trailers where he spent 14 years. He’s currently a member of the OTA Allied Trades Division while working for specialty truck body and trailer manufacturer Durabody.
“I’m really looking forward to working with my fellow board members to increase visibility and recognition of the Foundation within the trucking industry,” said Clay following his election. “It would be wonderful to see the number of scholarships that the Foundation can hand out significantly increase over the next few years.”
Also joining the board is James Steed, president of Steed Standard Transport, a fourth generation transportation and warehousing company based in Stratford, Ont. As a former benefactor of the foundation’s initiatives, Steed welcomes the chance go give back.
“The Education Foundation helped me when I was in college,” Steed said. “I look at this as a great opportunity to bring some fresh ideas so that the Foundation can continue to help college and university students.”
