I am humbled, honored and truly excited to be writing as The President of Hamilton Transportation Club for 2019. It is tremendous to be part of an organization that started in 1925 and has an active member (George Winchester) who joined the club in 1959. I have big shoes to fill after such a successful 2018 led by Alex Sinclair of Penske Truck Leasing who was supported by a great team on the Board of Directors.
2018 was a banner year for transportation and related businesses and services in the Greater Hamilton area. The industry is shaping up for significant growth and opportunity in the upcoming years. Being part of the club gives us a broad view of what is happening in our city and surrounding areas. We have a diversified and extensive list of members with Regional, National and International business interests and relationships that are being leveraged on a daily basis.
We are committed to supporting local business and charities and will continue to be active participants is community events and fundraising initiatives. As President, my mandate for 2019 is to focus on certain areas in order to maintain the success of the club, its members, board members and affiliates.
As a team we are looking to host events that allow incredible networking opportunities , skill development and community engagement. We are enhancing our social media presence within the market place in order to expand our target audience. Membership awareness and growth will continue to be a priority.
Growth with a focus on broadening our footprint of industries, services and individuals. We will strive to build relationships with supportive, experienced and knowledgeable Hamilton Transportation Club members. The membership represents hundreds of years of knowledge that is only a handshake, a phone call, or an email away. We are here to help and support each other.
Looking forward to a successful year.
