TBEI executive Tina Albright elected to NTEA board of trustees

Tina AlbrightLake Crystal, Minn. (April 26, 2017) – Truck Bodies & Equipment International, Inc. (TBEI) is pleased to announce the election of Tina Albright, vice president of human relations, TBEI, to the NTEA board of trustees. Albright’s election to the board was announced at the President’s Breakfast and NTEA Annual Meeting held in conjunction with The Work Truck Show® 2017.

Established in 1964, the NTEA is the association for the Work Truck Industry and represents 1,900 companies that manufacture, distribute, install, sell and repair commercial trucks, truck bodies, truck equipment, trailers and accessories.

“I am proud to have served in the work truck industry for over 20 years, and I look forward to serving on the board of trustees on behalf of TBEI,” said Albright. “There is a great concern with the lack of millennials joining the skilled trade industry. We must find ways to partner with community colleges and high schools to address the needs of the work truck industry, and I hope that through my time on the board I can help lead the NTEA to tackle this workforce challenge.”

Albright joined TBEI in 1995 and worked for 10 years at Rugby Manufacturing in production management, sales/marketing and HR. In her current position, she is responsible for coordinating TBEI HR policies and programs, and managing the company’s health, safety and welfare plans. Albright has been instrumental in helping TBEI tackle the modern channels of employee management, from the changing health care standards to recruiting and developing the next generation of leaders.

“As a member for almost 50 years, TBEI is a proud supporter of the work the NTEA does for the industry,” said Bob Fines, president, TBEI. “Tina worked both in the plant and in sales before moving to her role as VP of human relations — this allows her to bring a unique perspective that covers the customer, the plant floor and the board room. She will be a great addition to the NTEA board of trustees.”
