Tucker's Newly Certified Transportation Brokers (CTBs)

Congratulations to Tucker’s Hugh McLaughlin, VP Sales, and Mike Arlotta, Customer Service Coordinator. Hugh and Mike are the latest Tucker team members to pass their CTB exams from the Transportation Intermediaries Association (TIA). They join about a dozen other Tucker CTB team members. The CTB Program is meaningful to Tucker Company in another way, too. Tucker’s past President Bill Tucker (1972-2003), and CTB number 2, authored the first CTB Program. It was the central focus of his time as Chairperson of the Education Committee for TIA. His work developed curriculum and a series of tests to achieve certification. Today, the test continues to increase the professionalism and integrity of property brokerage, meet the educational needs of brokers, and expand basic knowledge of the brokerage and transportation industry through a rigorous certification program. There are over 1,280 CTBs nationwide.
