ATSSA announces departure of Vice President of Engagement

Nate Smith to take new role with Caterpillar Inc.

FREDERICKSBURG, Va. (May 8, 2023) – The American Traffic Safety Services Association (ATSSA), a leading organization in the roadway safety industry, today announced the departure of Nate Smith, Vice President of Engagement.

Effective May 9, Smith will resign his leadership position with ATSSA to join Caterpillar Inc. as a Manager of Government Affairs, focusing on transportation, infrastructure and other related policy issues.

Stacy Tetschner, ATSSA President and CEO, said of Smith, “We are grateful to Nate for his incredible body of work in advancing roadway safety. He has been integral to our government relations and membership endeavors for over 14 years. During his tenure, ATSSA has experienced tremendous success in growing our membership as well as engaging those members in our advocacy efforts, which ultimately led to record funding being passed to advance roadway safety infrastructure. We will miss his contributions and are supportive in his moving to a broader leadership role in the transportation and infrastructure community. Under Nate’s leadership of advocacy efforts, the industry experienced the biggest government investment into roadway safety infrastructure programs in U.S. history.”

In reflecting on his time at ATSSA, Smith said, “ATSSA’s mission of advancing roadway safety is embodied by our members every single day, and their commitment to safety enabled our team to be successful in our advocacy work both on Capitol Hill and in state capitals around the country. Although I am going to sincerely miss working with our members and staff, our membership and government relations teams are in great hands and are well-prepared to continue the mission forward. I am thrilled to continue advocating for transportation and infrastructure in my new role with Caterpillar.”
