| 8/26/2010

After a year-long search, the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance recently announced Stephen A. Keppler as its new executive director. Keppler has 18 years of experience in the transportation industry, almost all of which has been dedicated to truck and bus safety and security.

He has been employed with the CVSA since March 2000 in the position of Director of Policy & Programs and most recently as its interim executive director.

“After conducting a yearlong search for an executive director, I am pleased to announce on behalf of CVSA’s executive committee that we have selected Stephen A. Keppler as our executive director,” said CVSA’s president, Buzzy France.

“Steve has been serving earnestly as our interim executive director for nearly a year now, going above and beyond the call of duty to ensure the organization stayed on track during a very busy year,” said France.

Prior to this position, Keppler served as the Department Director for Vehicle Systems at the Intelligent Transportation Society of America, a trade association dedicated to furthering the deployment of technology in transportation. Before that, he was employed with the U.S. DOT/FHWA Office of Motor Carriers.

CVSA is an international not-for-profit organization composed of local, state, provincial, territorial, and federal motor carrier safety officials and industry representatives from the United States, Canada and Mexico. Its mission is to promote commercial motor vehicle safety and security by providing leadership to enforcement, industry and policymakers.
