HDA Truck Pride has completed the leadership transition of its CEO from Don Reimondo to Tina Hubbard. The transition has been evolving for the past year, with Hubbard assuming the title of President on Jan. 1, 2020.
With a gesture that would have been completed at the HDA Truck Pride 2020 annual conference, Reimondo will step into an advisory role to the staff and continue to oversee specific assignments through the remainder of 2020. His retirement will be celebrated at the 2021 HDA Truck Pride annual membership meeting.
“I have sincerely enjoyed my 12-plus years at HDA Truck Pride and I’m proud of the accomplishments and growth the organization has made over that period of time,” says Reimondo. “Special thanks to our members and supplier partners for their continued support and commitment during my tenure. Additionally, to our phenomenal staff for their energy and enthusiasm, you made my job easy and I will never be able to thank you enough.”
Hubbard agrees that the accomplishments and organizational growth are to be celebrated.
“We are beyond grateful to Don for his leadership, camaraderie, mentorship and friendship throughout the past 12 years. His love for the commercial vehicle industry; paired with his vision for HD America and the merger of HDA and Truck Pride catapulted us into the industry leader we’ve become today,” says Hubbard, now president and CEO.
“Tina’s transition into the CEO role is a natural progression, and is well-suited for the future of our organization,” adds David Settles, chairman of the HDA Truck Pride Board of Directors. “The respect she has for the membership, supplier base and our end users, is parallel to none. She will lead us well into the future – especially during these unprecedented times.”
