Newly Created Advocacy Position Will Connect Trucking Group to Other Organizations

Arlington, Va. – Today, American Trucking Associations President and CEO Bill Graves announced that veteran public policy and government relations professional Mala Krishnamoorti Parker has been named as the organization’s first vice president for coalitions.

“In Washington, it is important to connect not just with policymakers and legislators, but with other organizations that share common goals and interests,” Graves said. “When we’ve had successes in advancing ATA’s pro-safety, pro-trucking agenda, it is often due to the support of other industry groups, and Mala is going to help ATA rally such groups to our key issues to have an impact that benefits all of us.”

Parker comes to ATA with experience working both on and off Capitol Hill, having spent time at the National Association of Home Builders, as associate deputy secretary at the U.S. Department of Labor and as deputy chief of staff to former Rep. Connie Mack (R-Fla.).

“Mala is going to help ATA give elected officials the bigger picture when it comes to our issues,” said ATA Senior Vice President of Legislative Affairs Chris Spear. “Every trucking issue is an issue of broad concern to the entire supply chain, and she is going to make sure Washington knows that.”

“The trucking industry and ATA already have a tremendous reputation in Washington, so I’m excited to be joining the team’s efforts to advance an industry that’s so vital to our nation’s economy,” Parker said.

Parker is originally from Tacoma, Wash., where she also earned her degree from the University of Puget Sound.
