ATA Bids Farewell to Kidd

After serving as president of the Arkansas Trucking Association (ATA) for 22 years, Lane Kidd announced in a joint statement with ATA, plans to leave the organization to devote his full energies to The Kidd Group, LLC, a business investment and public affairs firm he created in 2013.

“I’ve wanted to pursue my own projects for some time now and there are many opportunities out there, so this feels like a good time to say goodbye to the ATA,” said Lane Kidd. “My career as ATA president has been a phenomenal experience, and I’m handing the keys over with ATA looking much better than it did 22 years ago.”

The Kidd Group will operate in Washington, D.C. and Arkansas providing business services in the transportation industry.

Gary Salisbury, chairman and CEO of Fikes Truck Line in Hope, Ark., and ATA chairman, said Kidd put the ATA on the map. “During Lane’s tenure, he has taken a relatively unknown group of truckers and propelled us to the front of the line. The ATA is known across the country as a leader and an example for other associations to strive for. As chairman of the ATA, I speak for the Board of Directors when I say that Lane will be missed and we wish him success as he starts his newest pursuits.”

Salisbury said the ATA will announce plans to name a replacement soon.
