OOIDA’s Todd Spencer named as one of the Top 100 Transformers by Business Insider
The Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association proudly announces that President and CEO Todd Spencer was recognized by national media outlet Business Insider. He was chosen as one of the Top 100 Transformers of the year.
The Business Insider Top 100 list features individuals that are driving change and innovation in their industries and companies. As part of the selection process, Spencer was interviewed about his history as an owner-operator and his decades-long career with the Association. His leadership of OOIDA’s efforts during the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic were particularly noted as a reason for the honor.
“He knew that professional truck drivers would need a great deal of support and that we needed to speak up soon and speak out strongly,” said director of public relations Norita Taylor. “When it came to the pandemic, it isn’t surprising that Todd parsed no words in the famous MAYDAY letter to the White House pleading for help.”
Business Insider is an online business journal launched by Henry Blodget in 2007 covering business, finance, cultural affairs, media, technology and other related industry news. The Top 100 list has been published annually for two years.
