MTAC President Mike Riley – who will retire in January after 29 years of service to the association – received special recognition from his colleagues at their annual meeting in Florida, in early July.
The American Trucking Associations’ Trucking Associations Executive Council (TAEC) presented him with the first annual TAEC Chairman’s Award of Excellence. In remarks introducing Riley, Ed Crowell, president and CEO of the Georgia Motor Trucking Association, and Chairman of TAEC, praised Riley for his long years of service to the industry and his leadership.
TAEC Region 1 executives also recognized Riley upon his retirement. Bob Sculley, president of the New Hampshire Trucking Association presented Riley with a crystal decanter etched with the TAEC logo and the names of all the 10 states in Region 1.
Riley thanked his colleagues for the friendship and all that he had learned from them and told them that he would sorely miss the annual opportunity to interact with his peers from around the country.
