TMSA Announces Hoppens, Derks 2019 Members of the Year

Minneapolis, June 20, 2019 (MindShare Strategies Media Services) – The Transportation Marketing & Sales Association (TMSA) announce the 2019 TMSA Members of the Year, in recognition of their leadership and support of TMSA. Each year, TMSA recognizes a regular member and an affiliate member who have made significant advances to the association’s mission. Both individuals were honored last week at the TMSA Logistics Marketing & Sales Conference near Jacksonville, Fla.

David Hoppens was named Member of the Year given his long history in the association’s leadership and his recent contributions as chairperson of TMSA’s succession planning committee. Hoppens currently is vice president of sales and marketing at Momentum Transportation, a Landstar agent, and is a long-standing member of the board of directors and former president and chairperson of TMSA.

Mark Derks was named Associate Member of the Year because of his significant leadership contribution on the board of directors and as chairperson of the TMSA finance committee. He also has participated on TMSA’s strategy task force. Formerly director of global marketing at C.H. Robinson for nearly 15 years, Derks currently is partner and chief marketing officer for Words At Work, a B2B marketing communications firm with expertise in transportation and logistics.

“The success of TMSA relies heavily on the leadership, vision and support of its volunteer members who are marketing and sales executives in the industry,” said Brian Everett, TMSA’s chief executive officer during a special recognition banquet at TMSA’s conference last week.
