Former NFL Star Quarterback Theismann and FMCSA Administrator Ferro to Keynote 10th Annual PeopleNet User Conference
Regulatory guidance and strategies for handling trying circumstances and dealing with unforeseen change
MINNEAPOLIS, June 20, 2012 – PeopleNet, a leading provider of innovative and integrated onboard computing and mobile communications systems for effective fleet management, today announced two keynote speakers for its 10th annual user conference, August 6-8 in Boca Raton, FL: Joe Theismann, analyst for the NFL Network and former Washington Redskins star quarterback and Anne S. Ferro, the administrator of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. PeopleNet President Brian McLaughlin said, “We’re earmarking our 10th user conference with two keynote presentations designed to help our customers respond to huge challenges they’re experiencing on two fronts. The speaker combination will provide valuable guidance about the regulatory landscape and strategies for handling trying circumstances and dealing with unforeseen change.”
Joe Theismann learned firsthand how to think, analyze and reinvent in the face of adversity and change after losing his successful football career at 35 to a serious injury. As FMCSA administrator, Ferro is carrying out FMCSA’s safety mission to: raise the bar for motor carrier safety; require high safety standards to operate, and remove unsafe carriers and drivers from our roads.
Theismann led his team to the Super Bowl XVII championship and was an Emmy award-winning analyst for two decades on ESPN’s critically acclaimed, Sunday Night NFL broadcast and is currently an analyst for the NFL Network. Ms. Ferro previously led the Maryland Motor Truck Association as its President and Chief Executive Officer from 2003 to 2009; and served as the State of Maryland's Motor Vehicle Administrator from 1997 to 2003.
