Dave Huneryager, president of the Tennessee Trucking Assn. has been appointed to the board of directors of the American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI).

Huneryager replaces Ed Crowell, president of the Georgia Motor Trucking Assn., who recently completely 11 years of service on the ATRI board.

“We are thrilled to have Dave join the ATRI board,” said ATRI President Rebecca Brewster. “His years of experience in the trucking industry and with the Tennessee Trucking Association will be of great value to our board as they lead the Institute’s work to improve the industry’s safety and productivity.”

Ed Crowell and another long-time serving ATRI board member Lud Koci were recognized for their service to ATRI at the recent board meeting. Koci, a director with Penske Corp., had served as an ATRI board member since its founding in 2001. 

“We are grateful to both Ed and Lud for their dedicated service to ATRI during its early years through the present,” said ATRI Chairman Steve Williams. “They have both been tireless advocates for ATRI in terms of fundraising, governance and outreach.”
