The Green Truck Association, an affiliate division of the NTEA seeking to advance the deployment of alternative fuels and sustainable technologies, recently elected new officers for its board of governors.
Robert Stevens, vice president of strategy for Michigan-based ROUSH CleanTech, will serve as the association's 2015-2016 chairman. Stevens accepted this responsibility from Bill Burns, the preceding chairman and fleet operations manager for the City of Columbus, Ohio.
‘I am grateful for this opportunity to take a leadership role in the Green Truck Association and use this position as a platform to support the movement toward adopting alternative fuel technologies,” comments Stevens.
“From a strategic perspective, I am interested in initiating actions to improve work truck efficiency and productivity, along with green capabilities and fuel optimization techniques,” he continues. “This organization is an outstanding resource to help move the commercial truck industry forward toward enhanced performance for trucks on the road today or in the future.”
Also elected for officer positions on the Green Truck Association's board of governors are Vice Chairman Shawn Brougham, director of marketing and product engineering at Missouri-based Altec Industries, and Treasurer John Davis, chief program engineer for Michigan-based Ford Commercial Vehicles. Each was elected to a one-year term.
Serving alongside the Green Truck Association officers are Amy Dobrikova, director of strategy and business development for Indiana-based Crosspoint Kinetics; Margo Melendez, manager of transportation technology deployment for the Colorado-based National Renewable Energy Laboratory; and Chris Weiss, vice president of engineering at Illinois-based The Knapheide Manufacturing Co.
