JUNE 12, 2020 – ALEXANDRIA, VIRGINIA – Transportation Intermediaries Association (TIA), the voice of the third-party logistics industry, announced today that Douglas G. Clark has been named Interim CEO of TIA, effective June 10, 2020.
Clark joins TIA with more than 40-years’ experience in the transportation and logistics industry, having started his career in 1979 at produce brokerage firm Golman-Hayden, where he would end up serving as Executive Vice President. He would later go on to become President of Greatwide Freight Brokerage Division following the acquisition of Cargo-Master by Greatwide Logistics Services in 2005.
“I have worked alongside Doug for more than 15 years and I am more than confident that he is prepared and equipped to serve as Interim CEO of the association,” said Brian Evans, TIA Board Chair and CEO of L&L Freight Services. “His extensive industry knowledge and commitment to TIA over the past several years puts him in the perfect position to lead the association while our Board of Directors conducts an extensive search for the next President & CEO of TIA.”
Clark succeeds Robert A. Voltmann, CAE, who announced earlier this week that he was stepping down from his role in leading the association after nearly 23 years.
“As the current Chair of TIA’s Legacy Committee and former Chair of TIA’s Board of Directors, I have experienced and contributed to the good work that TIA has done over the years to establish a voice for our members in Washington and around the world,” said Doug Clark, Interim CEO of TIA. “As Interim CEO, I am committed to continuing to support policies and strategies that expand our relationships, educate our members, and most importantly support, the 3PL industry as a whole.”
