ALEXANDRIA, Va. — The National Motor Freight Traffic Association (NMFTA) on Oct. 24 announced the appointment of Joe Ohr as the organization’s chief operating officer.
Ohr has more than 20 years of experience in engineering product software, gained from roles at Omnitracs, Qualcomm and Eaton.
“What NMFTA is being called upon to do with digitization, classification, and cybersecurity demands the sharpest and best deliverables,” said Debbie Ruane Sparks, executive director for NMFTA. “An individual who came from the trucking industry but also possessed extensive tech skills for the creation of elite software was a priority, and Joe Ohr is that expert.”
