Truckload Carriers Association Names New President

ALEXANDRIA, VA – The executive committee of the Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) has gone outside of the trucking industry in its hunt for new leadership, hiring John Lyboldt as the group’s new president.

For the past eight years, Lyboldt served as senior vice president of dealer services for the National Automobile Dealers Association, an organization that represents franchised new car and truck dealers, their managers, and their employees. Before that, he spent 17 years as the president and CEO of the Rochester Automobile Dealers Association in Rochester, NY.

According to TCA, Lyboldt’s impressive resume includes overseeing multiple, diverse business units and managing seventy five employees.

He succeeds Brad Bentley, who resigned on Aug. 27, due to family obligations.

The search was conducted by a special task force led by TCA Chairman Keith Tuttle. The task force, which reviewed more than 70 applications, was able to narrow the candidate pool down to seven.

“After all of the interviews were completed, it was our unanimous decision to recommend John as the next leader of TCA,” said Tuttle. “He brings broad experience in leading both profit and non-profit corporations. He has experience in motivating large and small teams and possesses strong financial oversight skills. We’re very glad John has agreed to join our trucking family.”

According to TCA, Lyboldt is skilled at reaching consensus among many local, state, and national stakeholders, improving efficiencies, building teams and interpersonal relationships.

He will begin working for TCA full-time on Monday, Dec. 21.

“It is an honor to be selected as TCA’s President, and I am thrilled to be leading a prominent well respected organization with rich history, experienced staff and that is vitally important to the success of its’ membership, external stakeholders and the truckload industry,” Lyboldt said.
