Graves made the announcement following the departure of Mary Phillips, formerly senior vice president of legislative affairs.

"Dave Osiecki has been a stalwart for the trucking industry since coming to ATA in 1996," Graves said. "His work leading ATA's policy and regulatory affairs team has been exemplary and given an ever more complex web of issues our industry is confronted with, it only makes sense to bring our policy and legislative groups together to improve efficiency and coordination."

"I'm excited and look forward to this new challenge," said Osiecki. "It provides me with a greater opportunity to lead, learn and grow within this great organization."

Over the past 18 years, Osiecki has served in a number of roles with ATA, including senior safety engineer, executive director of two conferences, and most recently as senior vice president of policy and regulatory affairs since 2010. In his time at ATA, he has been instrumental in favorably shaping numerous trucking regulations, ATA's policy priorities for several highway bills and crafting the association's 18-point progressive safety agenda.

Osiecki is a graduate of Pennsylvania State University and George Mason University.
