I am Matthew Gaddis, delighted to introduce myself as a recent addition to the esteemed board of the Indianapolis Transportation Club (ITC). My journey in the transportation industry commenced in 2013 in the city of Chicago, where I had the privilege of working with a few distinguished LTL carriers gaining invaluable experience and insights over the years.
In April of 2022, I embarked on a new chapter in my career, taking up a significant role at Al Warren Oil. Embracing this fresh opportunity, I was warmly welcomed into the Al Warren Oil family and quickly became an active member of their dynamic team. It was during my initial months at Al Warren Oil that I had the pleasure of a fortuitous meeting with Barb Randall from the ITC. Her visit not only filled me with enthusiasm but also sparked a profound interest in contributing to the transportation community on a broader scale.
Since joining the ITC, I have had the honor of working alongside a remarkable group of individuals on the board. Each member possesses an unwavering dedication and enthusiasm for the transportation sector, which has been truly inspiring. Our collective objective is to elevate the ITC's impact by expanding our scholarship fund. We firmly believe that investing in the education and development of aspiring professionals in the transportation industry is paramount to its growth and prosperity.
With unwavering determination and a well-defined strategy, we have planned a series of captivating events throughout the year to raise funds for our scholarship initiative. These events promise to be not only fulfilling but also enjoyable, fostering a sense of camaraderie among all attendees. We are confident that through our joint efforts, we will achieve new milestones and pave the way for a brighter future for aspiring transportation professionals.
As we forge ahead, I eagerly anticipate connecting with like-minded individuals who share our passion for the transportation sector and our cause. Together, we can create a powerful network of advocates, driving positive change and making a lasting impact on the lives of deserving students pursuing careers in transportation.
So, to all who believe in the transformative power of education and share our vision for the future of transportation, we extend an open invitation to join us at our upcoming events. Let us unite as a community of change-makers, driving progress and excellence in the transportation industry. Together, we can make a difference and leave a lasting legacy for generations to come.
