TCA Welcomes New Staffers, Hunter Livesay Promoted


Alexandria, Virginia: 

The Truckload Carriers Association is pleased to announce the addition of Darryl Gale and Kim Grimmick to its skilled workforce, and the promotion of Hunter Livesay.

Darryl, TCA’s new marketing and conventions coordinator, comes to the association with nearly two decades of experience in sales and advertising. He served in the U.S. Army, was a member of the military police and was stationed in Fort Polk, Louisiana, and Germany. After serving for seven years, Darryl took his skills to working with associations in the Washington, DC-metro area managing exhibit halls and special events.

In his free time, Darryl enjoys running half marathons, Spartan races, and tandem jumping, along with bowling and photography.

Kim, TCA’s new associate director of education, has extensive experience in instructional design, implementation of learning platforms, and the creation of educational courses.

In addition to her professional experience, Kim is a passionate educator and advocate. She loves spending time volunteering with her daughter’s Girl Scout Troop and camping in beautiful Chincoteague, Virginia. She also enjoys Zumba and most Saturday mornings during college game season you will find her rooting for her alma mater — Clemson University. Go Tigers! She was born in Washington and grew up in Fairfax County, Virginia, where she currently lives with her husband Patrick and daughter Mary.

As of July 26, Livesay has been promoted to digital communications and systems manager.

In 2015, he joined TCA as a marketing and conventions coordinator after his roles in the audio visual field as a studio manger and technician. He has also managed creative and digital collateral for a marketing firm in the DC-metro area.

Under Marli Hall’s guidance, Hunter will enhance TCA’s strategic communications, increase awareness of the association’s public affairs initiatives, and will continue to manage TCA’s internal marketing task force. His vast knowledge of digital and visual content will help to elevate TCA’s myriad of image programs, contest and awards by engaging TCA’s membership and prospects.

Please help the TCA team welcome Darryl and Kim to the truckload family, and congratulate Hunter for his well-deserved promotion.
