Nussbaum Transportation Chief Administration Officer Jeremy Stickling will serve as chairman for the Truckload Carriers Association’s (TCA) 2022-2023 Safety and Security Division Committee.
In this capacity, Stickling will oversee TCA’s Safety and Security Division, which helps shape TCA safety policy and plans the annual meeting. His appointment was announced June 7 during the annual Safety and Security Division meeting in Nashville, Tennessee.
TCA Chairman and CEO of Load One LLC John Elliott said of the appointment, “TCA is thrilled to have Jeremy take on this leadership position within our safety committee. He is an exemplary addition to a long line of excellent, hardworking safety professionals who have served in this role.”
Elliott says Stickling has proven himself a leader within the association, lending his industry expertise to the Safety and Security Committee since 2018 and serving as an active professional among members before that.
Since starting his tenure at Nussbaum in 2007, the company has experienced low driver turnover and strong safety results while more than tripling the fleet size.
Stickling has contributed to eight consecutive Best Fleets to Drive For awards from 2015-2022, including Best Overall-Small Fleets (2019) and Best Overall-Large Fleets (2020), in addition to a Hall of Fame recipient (2021).
“Serving as the TCA safety chairman is a true honor,” Stickling said. “Those who have held this role before me have set a high standard. I will be blessed to work with an organization like Truckload Carriers Association that is at the forefront, working on behalf of the industry. I look forward to doing my part and contributing.”
More than 300 safety and human-resource professionals gathered in downtown Nashville in June to discuss shared problems and find solutions. In his new role, Stickling will oversee the work by safety committee members to plan the annual event, in an effort to best engage and serve the truckload safety community.
