Meet NTEA’s 60th Board chair

Jason Ritchey
NTEA Board Chair
Curry Supply Co.
(Altoona, Pennsylvania)

This article was published in the March 2024 edition of NTEA News.

First, I’d like to acknowledge my fellow NTEA Board directors, including our outgoing directors and 2023–2024 Board chair David Scheitlin. It’s been a pleasure working with such a talented group of professionals.

I’ve spent over 25 years in the work truck industry, serving as president and owner of Curry Supply Co. since 2011.

My educational background includes a Master of Business administration degree from Saint Francis University, specialized study in business law at Penn State University and a Bachelor of Arts degree from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. I am a member of Young Presidents’ Organization (Pittsburgh and Scottsdale chapters), the Duquesne Club, the Penn State Nittany Lion Club and the Jaffa Shriners. I also serve as a Caterpillar AVP Board member.

I’ve been married to my wife Kristy for 17 years, and we have three children: Jace, Jia and Jaxon. We are involved in all their activities, including football, baseball, Tae Kwon-Do, golf and skiing.

I sought NTEA Board involvement to offer insights, business expertise and to give something back to the industry. I envisioned NTEA creating a new approach to engaging the younger generation and make them aware of opportunities available in the industry, as well as emphasizing a focus on advanced education with an innovative curriculum designed to encourage continues learning.

I’m looking forward to the year ahead as Board chair serving the NTEA membership and commercial vehicle industry.
