TLPA names new president

Posted on October 19, 2015

The Taxicab, Limousine & Paratransit Assoc. (TLPA) named Mike Fogarty, president/CEO, American operations for the Tristar Worldwide Chauffeur Services, as its new president.

Fogarty now helms the largest professional trade association of the for-hire transportation industry in the world. The association’s presidents are elected from within its 1,100 members — comprised of owners of small, medium and large transportation fleets — to serve a one-year term.

Fogarty was sworn into office during the TLPA’s 96th Annual Convention & Trade Show held in San Antonio. In a speech to members, Fogarty outlined what he called his “ABC agenda” for the coming year to fight against so-called Transportation Network Companies, such as Uber and Lyft.

His agenda includes addressing the industry’s image; battling for a level playing field against illegal, unlicensed transportation services; and collaborating with other associations and industries.
