Lowell, MA - Nov 17 - FASTPORT, a technology company that was created to educate, inspire and hire the next generation of America’s commercial truck drivers, welcomes its new President, Brad Bentley, whose accomplished career has led him from various leadership positions in trucking media companies like Randall-Reilly to most recently serving as President of the Truckload Carriers Association (TCA). Effective today, Bentley will oversee a variety of key roles, including sales, operations and forming and enhancing trucking industry partnerships.

“Brad’s years of driver recruitment advertising experiences make him uniquely qualified to accelerate the next phase of our business,” said FASTPORT Co-Founder Jim Ray. “With Brad’s help, we can rapidly take our military program to the next level of success while we implement our technology in the commercial space with a laser-point focus on continually improving results.”

Bentley’s arrival at FASTPORT comes after the company’s vanguard technology, JobMaps™, launched to increase the effectiveness of driver recruiting. That technological foundation has enabled FASTPORT to build a partnership with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Hiring Our Heroes Program and 12 industry leaders in Veteran employment that has educated thousands of military Veterans about trucking careers. Bentley’s role as President will help guide FASTPORT as it develops the next iteration of online recruiting technology and establishes new partnerships.

FASTPORT CEO Bill McLennan added, “Brad’s vision of industry collaboration coupled with his personal values are aligned with FASTPORT’s mission. His commitment to improving the trucking industry for carriers, for drivers and for our Veterans is exemplary.”

“Brad has a stellar track record of leadership involvement with Wreaths Across America, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund’s The Wall That Heals project and creating the Operation Heroes To Highways program while at the helm of the TCA,” continued McLennan. “We are delighted that Brad has accepted this decisive role within FASTPORT to help lead our acceleration.”
