Two ATA staffers receive promotions

Alabama Trucking Association President and CEO Mark Colson announced today the promotion of two veteran employees.

Tim Frazier has been promoted to Vice President of Safety and Compliance after more than a decade with the Association. He has more than 35 years of experience in the trucking industry specializing in fleet safety and maintenance management with stints at Walmart Transportation and the former McGriff Transportation. Frazier has successfully managed some of the largest and safest fleets in the country earning a reputation as a leading fleet safety professional. In 2002, he was named Alabama Safety Professional of the Year by the Alabama Trucking Association’s Safety & Maintenance Management Council (SMMC). He is a Certified Director of Safety as awarded by the North American Transportation Management Institute. 

Frazier joined ATA in 2011 with primary responsibilities of assisting and advising the president in the operation of varied member services, programs and activities. He manages all SMMC programs and chapters and also serves as the Association’s liaison to the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.

In addition to his duties for ATA, he sits on the board directors for Alabama Operation Lifesaver and Bevill State Community College Truck Driving School Advisory Council, among others.

Likewise, another long-time ATA staffer, Brandie Norcross, has been promoted to Director of Membership & Events and will manage all correspondence with ATA members while promoting and administering various ATA and SMMC events and programs.

Norcross holds a Bachelor of Science degree in commerce and business administration from the University of Alabama and an associate’s degree in business from Bevill State Community Colleg (formerly Walker College).

Norcross joined ATA in 2008 as an administrative assistant rising to member relations manager in 2018. Her new role will include growing ATA’s membership base and expanding membership participation and support of ATA and safety council events and programs.

“ATA is blessed with a talented and dedicated staff that has served our members diligently for many years,” said Colson. “Tim and Brandie are true professionals who know this Association’s mission and its members’ needs as well as anyone. Their commitment to Alabama Trucking over their many years of service has returned value to our members ten-fold.”
