J. Richards “Rick” Todd–SC Trucking Association
Richards “Rick” Todd is the president and CEO of the South Carolina Trucking Association, an “alliance of businesses that use trucks.”
Their lobbying efforts over the years have positioned South Carolina’s motor carriers with excellent operating and tax conditions, and led initiatives to reform and restructure state government to better serve business and industry – all designed to improve SC’s competitive position, including: DOT, DMV and State Ports Authority. They championed creation of State Transport Police and Motor Carrier Services. SCTA passed the first “Safe Intermodal Chassis Bill” in the nation – which was the impetus for federal action.
SCTA is leading an innovative broad-based skilled trades workforce promotion initiative through their Foundation called Be Pro Be Proud SC, and has secured state funding to operate the 5-year campaign, and is seeking private sector donations for capital/equipment and marketing services.
As a leader of the SC Coalition for Lawsuit Reform, they’ve achieved successes with legislation impacting trucking Independent Contractors, Workers Compensation, Venue, and some Tort Reforms. Currently they are fighting back against predatory, trucker-hunting, contingency-fee lawyers, and their abuses of job-stifling and un-warranted punitive damages claims. These campaigns are on-going, as they try to improve SC’s outlier lawsuit environment.
SCTA’s “TruckPAC” is among the largest and most effective at the State Capitol.
Rick, a Columbia, SC native, began his career at SCTA upon graduation from the University of South Carolina in 1979 with a Degree in Journalism, and was named CEO in 1988. He has chaired, held leadership positions, and received numerous distinguished awards from state and national associations and organizations. Rick and his wife Susan reside in Columbia, and have a daughter he calls “Molly.”
