OTTAWA, Ont. — A man of integrity and vision, is how the Canadian Trucking Alliance (CTA) describes Andrew Zaleski, previous president of Calgary-based Trimac Transportation Services.
Zaleski is this year’s recipient of the CTA/Trailmobile Service to Industry Award, recognizing an individual making an outstanding contribution to the development and success of the truck transportation industry.
The award will be presented at Ottawa’s National Press Club in conjunction with a reception held by the Alliance. Best known for his previous job, when Zaleski stepped down from this position earlier this year, he was simultaneously appointed to Trimac’s board of directors.
Zaleski began his career at Trimac Transportation Services as vice-president and general manager of the company’s Canadian operations. In just over a year he rose to president of the company and, in 1986, he also assumed responsibility for the company’s U.S. trucking operations.
Trimac’s revenues grew from $100 million to approximately $700 million over the 19 years of Andrew Zaleski’s leadership. A native of Poland, Zaleski and his wife Ursula make their home in Calgary. The couple has three adult children — Tamara, Bohdan and Renata.
