As President and CEO of ArcBest Corporation, Ms. McReynolds is responsible for managing the multi-billion dollar freight transportation and logistics services company, including oversight of the operating companies ABF Freight, ABF Logistics, Panther Premium Logistics and FleetNet America.

"We are excited to see Judy in the chairman's role at ATRI and know that her extensive industry experience and strategic leadership will serve ATRI well," commented Phil Byrd, immediate past chairman of the American Trucking Associations.

In acknowledging Steve Williams' six years of service as ATRI Chairman, ATA President and CEO Bill Graves remarked, "Under Steve's leadership, ATRI's research has gained worldwide recognition for its objective analysis of key industry issues on topics ranging from hours-of-service, CSA, congestion, highway funding and the environment. The result is a safer, more productive trucking industry."
