State Trucking Group Honors Greg Brown for Distinguished Service
According to ATA President and CEO Frank Filgo, the Association has had its share of great leaders, but few personify the ideals and characteristics of this award more closely than Mr. Brown. “He is the perfect ATA member,” said Filgo. “He consistently gives of himself and his resources for the betterment of our organization. I can honestly think of no one more deserving than Greg of this honor. Without leaders like him, we would be unable to do the important work our members expect of us. This Association is forever grateful for his service and sacrifice for the advancement and improvement of Alabama’s vast trucking industry.”
B.R. Williams is a legacy ATA member with more than 54 years of close affiliation to the Association. In fact, three B.R. Williams executives have served as ATA Chairman, and the company’s support of the Association is among the strongest there is. Mr. Brown has served this Association with distinction and honor for more than a decade, joining its executive board in 2010, and immediately volunteering to represent ATA as its State Vice President to the American Trucking Associations in Washington D.C., a position he still maintains. In 2016, National ATA honored Greg with the Rocque Dameo Award for his longtime leadership and service to that organization.
Likewise, he’s a relentless and engaged community advocate, supporting several area charitable groups in his home town of Anniston, including serving as a trustee for his alma mater, Jacksonville State University.
