The American Trucking Associations’ Technology & Maintenance Council (TMC) elected Stacy Earnhardt, director of asset management at Best Specialized, as 2020-21 general chairman and treasurer during the organization’s Annual Meeting.

“Stacy has been an exemplary member of TMC, including winning the Silver Spark Plug this year,” said Robert Braswell, TMC’s executive director. “His professionalism and commitment to trucking make him an outstanding choice to be TMC general chairman and treasurer.”

Earnhardt, from Kernersville NC, served this past year as the Council’s vice chairman and chairman of meetings. He succeeds Kenneth Calhoun, fleet optimization manager for Altec Industries of Conway AR, as general chairman and treasurer.

“I’m honored to accept this position from my fellow TMC members,” Earnhardt said, “I look forward to working with the rest of TMC’s leadership to advance our industry’s goals. I also want to thank Kenneth for his service to our organization.”

Calhoun, in turn, thanked fellow TMC members and called serving as chairman and treasurer “an incredible honor.”

“As I hand off the chairmanship of TMC, I want to congratulate Stacy on his election and wish him luck,” Calhoun said. “I’m sure he will be an outstanding leader for our Council.”
