Jeff Harris named general chairman and treasurer, ATAs’ Technology & Maintenance Council


VAN BUREN, Ark., March 6, 2018 – USA Truck Inc. (Nasdaq: USAK), a leading capacity solutions provider headquartered in Van Buren, Arkansas, today recognizes the accomplishments of Jeff Harris, USA Truck’s Vice President of Maintenance. Harris has been named general chairman and treasurer, during the American Trucking Associations’ Technology & Maintenance Council’s Annual Meeting; in addition, he was honored with the Silver Sparkplug Award.

 

“Jeff is a wonderful leader and person. The TMC could not have chosen a better candidate to lead their organization at this critical time in our industry’s evolution. His expertise, intellectual curiosity, and leadership make for the perfect combination to lead the organization at this time as new technologies intersect with old in making trucking safer, more efficient, and more cost-effective. This public recognition is a manifestation of what we get to witness every day at USA Truck with Jeff – he is just exceptional in every way,” stated President and CEO James Reed.

 

As a well-rounded veteran of the industry, Harris is currently serving his 2nd three-year term on the TMC Board of Directors and received the Silver Spark Plug Award. “When they began introducing the recipients, the speaker announced the year I began, and I started putting all the pieces together. I was totally surprised” Harris said. The award is TMC’s highest honor and is given in recognition of an individual’s exceptional contributions to the cause of improving heavy-duty vehicle maintenance.

 

Harris served as the ATA Technology & Maintenance Council’s vice chairman and chairman of meetings for 2017 and has been a member since 2006. In 2013 he was elected to the Board of Directors. “I was Chairman of the S.4 Cab and controls for three years and had to give that up when I was elected to the TMC Board of Directors,” said Harris, “Being recognized like this by my peers in TMC is a tremendous honor.”
