The executive committee of the Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) has voted for John Lyboldt as the association’s new president. He succeeds Brad Bentley, who resigned in late August due to family obligations.
A special task force led by TCA Chairman Keith Tuttle conducted the search, reviewing more than 70 applications before narrowing down the field to seven finalists.
“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.”
For the past eight years, Lyboldt has served as senior vice president, 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, N.Y.
Lyboldt’s resume includes overseeing multiple, diverse business units and managing 75 employees. He is skilled at reaching consensus among many local, state and national stakeholders, improving efficiencies, building teams and interpersonal relationships. Personally, he is known for his strong ethics, diplomacy, and professionalism. He will begin working for TCA full-time on 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 and an experienced staff.”
