Dan Horvath joined ATA after more than five years as the director of compliance and safety at TransForce Inc.

The American Trucking Associations announced this month that it has hired Dan Horvath as its new director of safety policy. A 2017 LEAD ATA graduate, Horvath joined ATA after more than five years as the director of compliance and safety at TransForce Inc., based in Alexandria, Va., and a national provider of workforce solutions for the commercial transportation industry and safety compliance consulting.

"ATA is a safety-first organization, and having Dan on board will allow us to maintain our position as the leading voice advocating for the safety of the trucking industry," said ATA President and CEO Chris Spear. "Dan has a wealth of experience with highway safety issues, and we are happy that he is part of the ATA team."

"I've spent my professional career working in commercial vehicle and highway safety, so I'm excited to bring that experience to ATA to help this industry and our members improve upon trucking's already impressive safety record," Horvath said. "ATA has always been a strong voice for safety and I’m delighted that I now get to be a part of that."

Horvath also has been a Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration auditor and spent several years in the operations and safety department at Mlaker Transportation Inc., a Pennsylvania-based motor coach company.
