"It is a tremendous honor to be selected by one's peers to represent them," Card said. "So I hope to do America's trucking industry proud this year.

"It is not secret that our nation and our industry are at a crossroads – with looming changes in hours-of-service, a steady, but still slow economic recovery, a federal government threatening to impose even more onerous regulations on our industry while all the while underinvesting in the highway system we depend on," Card said. "I truly believe that in order to overcome this myriad of challenges, we need to continue to work together as an industry and I hope to play a role in doing that."

"Mike is emblematic of what makes our industry great," said ATA President and CEO Bill Graves. "The son of a driver-turned-entrepreneur and the leader of a family business, Mike will be a tremendous ambassador for ATA and for trucking."

Card takes over as chairman from Dan England, chairman of C.R. England Inc., Salt Lake City.

"This past year as ATA chairman has been an extraordinary experience," England said. "I'd like to once again thank my fellow ATA members and wish my friend Mike Card the best of luck this year. I'm sure he'll be an excellent representative of our industry."
