Reinke will assume day-to-day leadership while working in tandem with the board of directors and key stakeholders to help the association further its mission of advocating for the third-party logistics sector. She will begin Oct. 26.
“After an extensive and deliberate selection process, the board of directors is excited that Anne will lead TIA as the association endeavors to advance its position as the leading advocate for 3PLs and supporting ethical brokers as they build successful businesses,” Brian Evans, TIA chairman and CEO of L&L Freight Services, said in a statement.
Reinke worked for nearly two years at the U.S. Department of Transportation. She started as deputy assistant secretary for intergovernmental affairs before transitioning to deputy assistant secretary for congressional affairs.
“Anne’s experience in the transportation industry, coupled with her extensive government affairs background and leadership skills, will help guide TIA as we seek to enhance strategic alliances, strengthen industry and stakeholder partnerships and increase our standing on Capitol Hill,” Evans said, “all in support of providing increased tools, resources and representation to our members.”

Douglas Clark has been serving as interim president since June. Clark is a 40-year industry veteran and TIA honorary life member. Former CEO Robert Voltmann stepped down from the position at about that time.
Voltmann took on the leadership role at the association in June 1997. He said that leaving was difficult but that he had accomplished everything he was hired to do, including improving TIA’s financial situation and political influence.
TIA has represented the 3PL industry since its founding in 1978, advocating for transportation intermediaries of all disciplines in domestic and international commerce.
