ATSSA announces Tetschner as new president and CEO

Tetschner will succeed longtime president Roger Wentz

FREDERICKSBURG, Va. (Feb. 6, 2020) – The American Traffic Safety Services Association (ATSSA) announces the appointment of Stacy Tetschner as president and CEO, effective March 16. Tetschner succeeds Roger Wentz who is retiring after more than 22 years as president and CEO. Tetschner most recently served as president and CEO of the United Motorcoach Association (UMA).

Tetschner is a seasoned and credentialed association professional with 20 years of experience as a CEO. He began his tenure at UMA in June of 2017 following a nationwide search. He is a Certified Association Executive (CAE), as well as a Fellow of the American Society of Association Executives (FASAE).

“We’re delighted to have a professional of Stacy’s level of experience join ATSSA as CEO at this critical time in the industry. We’re facing the renewal of the FAST-ACT, the introduction of connected and automated vehicles, and rapid technological change in our industry. Stacy’s seasoned leadership will be a key element to our success,” said Greg Driskell, chair of ATSSA’s Board of Directors and president and CEO of PPP Inc. in Jacksonville, Fla.

As UMA’s President and CEO, Tetschner brought a strategic vision and strong leadership to UMA, launching an educational foundation that will provide resources through a first-of-its-kind partnership with LinkedIn, re-invigorating the UMA Motorcoach Expo through a combination of high quality general session productions and show floor innovations like the first-ever Mini Coach Pavilion. Tetschner was instrumental in creating a unifying legislative fly-in that, for the first time, brought all industry associations together for an advocacy event in 2018.

He is a contributing author of two books, “Paid to Speak: Best Practices for Building a Successful Speaking Business” and “Windows into Heaven: Stories Celebrating Down Syndrome.”

Beyond his role leading UMA, Tetschner is an accomplished national leader in the association field, as an active member of the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE), where he has served on the board and as vice chairman of ASAE and the Center for Association Leadership. In addition, he has served as the Chairman of the Board and as a director for the Convention Industry Council.

He and his wife Michelle have three sons.
