In Memoriam
Jim Johnston, the longtime
president and CEO of the OwnerOperator Independent Drivers
Association, died in early January
at age 78. He led the organization
for 43 years as it grew to represent
small business truckers in all segments of the industry.
"The trucking industry has
lost a visionary and crusader for
the rights of all truckers," noted
Johnston
Todd Spencer, OOIDA's executive
vice president, in a statement. Spencer now is serving as the
group's acting president.
Ronald Lefcourt, who co-founded Alliance Shippers
Inc. and was its president since 1977, passed away in early
January. He was 82.
He began working in the less-than-truckload industry after
completing high school, and soon created Alliance, which
was one of the early supporters of intermodal. Over the years,
the company evolved under his leadership to provide overthe-road, temperature control, international, warehouse and
distribution services as well as intermodal.
