The Executive Committee of the Industrial Truck Association (ITA) recently announced the new executive director of the association will be Brian Feehan, vice president of the Propane Education & Research Council (PERC). Feehan is set to take the reins on Jan. 1, 2012, when Bill Montwieler, who had been executive director since 1983, retires.

“Brian is well known to all of us through his work at the Propane Education and Research Council,” ITA president Jeff Rufener said. “He’s attended every ITA meeting for the last six years, including the association’s Executive Committee sessions and has contributed mightily to our air quality efforts; Brian joined the ITSDF Board of Trustees last February.  His previous experience with the World Liquefied Petroleum Gas Association in Paris places him in good stead to continue our efforts in Europe, Japan and China.”

In his role with PERC, Feehan helps the industry-funded organization, focus on engine fuel, research and development, safety and training, agricultural markets, and residential and commercial markets. Prior to his role at PERC, he served as the executive director of the Propane Vehicle Council (PVC). The PVC was the national organization representing the propane industry’s engine fuel interests. 

Prior to joining the PVC, Feehan served as the projects director for the World LP Gas Association (WLPGA) in Paris. He holds a bachelor’s degree in political science and a master’s degree in public administration from George Mason University.
