TORONTO, Ont. — Doug Switzer, former v.p., public affairs for the Ontario Trucking Association and Canadian Trucking Alliance has taken a position as president of the Ontario Motor Coach Association (OMCA).

Switzer assumes his new role Aug. 1.

“Doug’s experience as a senior executive with both a provincial and national transportation association and his experience inside government will certainly assist OMCA and MCC in meeting our future goals” said John Crowley, chair of the succession committee (and chairman of the OMCA).

“Doug served OTA well for 12 years and now he has the opportunity to head up an association,” OTA CEO David Bradley told Trucknews.com. “We wish him well.” Bradley also pointed out Switzer’s predecessor Brian Crow also joined the motor coach association from OTA. “We have a great staff and it does not surprise me they are pursued by other organizations,” Bradley said.

The motor coach association said it completed an exhaustive search and interview process when searching for its new representative over the past four months.
