Scott Tilley, co-president of Tandet Logistics in Oakville and a dedicated board member of the OTA Education Foundation since 2010, is the new vice-chair.
“The Foundation’s directors felt that Scott’s willingness to participate in several industry boards and committees is a testament to his enthusiasm and energy, which will continue to be an asset to the Foundation,” said Scott Smith, Chair of the Foundation.
Tilley is currently vice-chair of the Ontario Trucking Association, and is a past chair of OTA’s Membership and Finance Committees. He is also on the boards of the Canadian Trucking Alliance and The Trucks for Change Network.
Noting that the Foundation has disbursed more than $250,000 in scholarships since 2008, Tilley says that is “serious money, but we all feel that we can do better as we continue to assist students that are in some way affiliated with the trucking industry.”
As Vice Chair, Tilley is committed to expanding the Foundation’s reach to more students and to increasing its base of donors. “It is an honour to be part of an organization that recognizes this need and brings together like-minded people from our industry,” said Tilley.
Tilley replaces Drumbo Transport’s Ellen Poll, who served as vice-chair since 2005, and was an active board member for several years prior to that.
