The Private Motor Truck Council of Canada elected a new Board of Directors for 2020-2021 and is pleased to welcome seven new Board members,
Mathew Blackman, Scott Creighton, Jessica Griffiths, Keith Lamb, Sudhanshu Malhotra, Leanne Quail and Michele Roberts. Private Motor Carrier is pleased to introduce you to one of the new Board members, Keith Lamb, and the Young Leaders Group (YLG) Board Chair, Matt Richardson.
Keith is an experienced Senior Manager, with a proven track record, working in the oil and energy industry. He is skilled in Petroleum, Operations Management, Safety Management Systems, Warehouse Operations, and Transportation Management.
As Director of Fleet, Keith’s primary responsibilities include overseeing the fleet procurement, operations and maintenance program, as well as support to the Environmental Health & Safety team from a regulatory guidance perspective. He holds a diploma in Mechanical Engineering from Mohawk College.
Involvement With PMTC
“My involvement with the PMTC has always been at a distance,” said Lamb. “We [4Refuel] have been members for years and I have been reading and sharing the detail provided from the regular communications coming out of the PMTC. I have had some communication with Mike and realized that the PMTC was actually providing my organization, and other like us, with extremely valuable information.”
“I decided that I wanted to give back so I reached out to Mike and asked how I could help. I have been in the transportation industry for about 33 years in all different aspects of it – operations, fleet maintenance, environmental, health and safety, and senior management (with a focus much of my career particularly the fuels/bulk liquid transportation) – and thought I could provide some insight and/or experience.”
Goals for the PMTC Board
“The one thing would be to help provide added value to the PMTC with the years I have been in the industry and potentially share some of the knowledge I have collected along the way.”
“I enjoy woodworking, building cabinets and furniture in my spare time, of late Epoxy River tables have mostly been in my shop.”
Matt is the Sales and Operations Manager at KRTS Transportation Specialists, Inc. (KRTS) and has been in the trucking industry since he was old enough to hold a scrub brush and help wash trucks. A proud holder of his AZ license, Matt is a graduate of the University of Guelph where he played football for the Gryphons and captained the team in his final three years. Along with his role at KRTS, Richardson is also the Chairman of the Private Motor Truck Council of Canada’s Young Leaders Group (PMTC YLG) and lives at home in Caledonia with wife, Julie, and two young daughters, Tessa and Makayla.
Involvement With PMTC
“I have been heavily involved with the PMTC for a little over five years,” said Richardson. “I was asked to be part of the Committee, tasked with getting the YLG launched again, and after roughly one and a half years, I was asked if I would take over the Chairman’s position with the YLG. I gladly accepted and am honoured that the group re-elected me for a second term from 2020-2022. I look forward to working with the new board and continuing the growth and momentum of the group that the past Board was instrumental in doing.”
