RangeWay’s Wesley Dunn appointed to small business commission

Lt. Gov. Will Ainsworth has appointed RangeWay Carriers managing member Wesley Dunn of Birmingham to serve on the Alabama Small Business Commission (ASBC), an advisory group of independent business owners responsible for advising government entities.

The Commission consists of 30 appointed members who own or operate businesses with 50 or fewer employees. The group meets quarterly to formulate policies, encourage innovation and discuss issues critical to the economic growth of small independent businesses and their interests in the state of Alabama. The commission also provides technical assistance and serves as an information resource to the small business commission as they explore best practices and areas of reform including current rules, regulations and existing state statutes.

“The majority of trucking companies in Alabama are small businesses,” says Alabama Trucking Association President and CEO Mark Colson. “Our industry is fortunate that someone of Wesley’s quality has been selected by Lt. Governor Ainsworth to bring his perspective to this important commission.”

Dunn is a graduate of the University of Alabama and a recent graduate of the American Trucking Associations’ Lead ATA program. He also serves on the Alabama Trucking Association board of directors.
