National Tank Truck Carriers made it official, naming Ryan Streblow, who previously served as the organization’s executive vice president, as its fifth president and CEO.
Streblow had served as the association’s interim president since August, 2020.
NTTC represents more than 500 companies that specialize in transporting bulk or related services throughout North America. The tank truck industry generates roughly 5.1% of all truck freight revenue, but that represents 30% of all truck freight in terms of tonnage due to the heavy nature of the liquid bulk products handled.
“We are extremely excited to have Ryan at the helm of our organization,” said Kevin Jackson, NTTC chairman of the board. “He has contributed to the success of NTTC since coming onboard in 2016, and recently led our organization through an incredibly challenging time over the past nine months as interim president.
“His experience in the industry, leadership, and vision are key to the future evolution and growth of our organization.”
Streblow started with NTTC, which is in its 76th year, in 2016 as VP of sales and marketing, with a focus on driving membership and financial stability. In spring, 2019, Streblow was elevated to EVP, where he helped retool the association’s approach to membership and industry engagement.
He began his transportation career in 2001 with Veolia Environmental Services, a solid and special waste hauler, managing sales in Wisconsin. In 2004, he moved to J. J. Keller & Associates, a regulatory and compliance company, where he held roles in sales, and ultimately rose to oversee corporate business development.
Throughout Streblow’s 20-year career, he has sat on numerous industry boards and been involved in various transportation organizations, including the American Trucking Association image and communications committee, National Private Truck Council’s board of governors, the Truckload Carriers Association, and the Allied Committee for the Trucking Industry.
Streblow currently resides in Northeast Wisconsin with his wife and two children.
He stepped in for the association’s fourth president, Dan Furth, who departed last summer after 12 years with NTTC, the last eight as president.
“Dan had been with us for 12-plus years, and done some amazing things for the association,” Jackson told Bulk Transporter for its annual chairman’s interview. “He really helped move us forward, oversaw some successes on the advocacy side, and helped bring in Britton Clarke (president of BC Consulting) as our lobbyist, and she’s been phenomenal.
“But with the unique atmosphere, it was time for both of us to go in a new direction.”
Furth served as vice president from 2008 to 2013, when he succeeded John Conley as NTTC’s fourth president. Conley spent 12 years as the editor of Bulk Transporter before joining the association in 1989, and serving as president from 2006 to 2013. He followed Cliff Harvison (1972-2005) and Austin Sutherland (1945-72).
“There have been some outstanding leaders in this organization, from laying the groundwork, to building on the efforts in advocacy, safety recognition, industry awareness and tank truck education,” Streblow said last fall during virtual Tank Truck Week. “I truly believe NTTC is one of the strongest member-driven organizations in transportation.
“With me, that philosophy will not change. Rather, it will be elevated to look at leveling and enhancing both the business and the value of the association.”
