John Blair

An attorney who previously worked in government relations for the CBIA – the state’s largest business organization – is now the next president of the Motor Transport Association of Connecticut (MTAC), organization representatives have announced.

John Blair, the sixth person to hold the title of MTAC President in its 102-year history – will join MTAC on October 1. He will serve the first two months concurrently with outgoing president Joe Sculley before Sculley steps down. 

Blair said he will expand MTAC’s programs, including their commercial “safety group” insurance program and the drug and alcohol testing program. Axel Carrion of UPS, who chaired MTAC’s search committee to find a new president, said committee members were impressed with Blair’s work at the capitol. 

In addition to his time with CBIA, Blair has also been the Principle of Blair Law LLC, Counselor at Law/Government Relations at Brown Rudnick, and was the Chief of Staff at the Office of Health Care Access.
