Testimonials From TTC Members

Kelli Saunders

I’ve been a TTC member for some 17 years and Past President in 2010. When asked recently of the benefits of being a member of the TTC, my answer was “wow, there are so many….” As a member of the TTC, the Club brings to you North American’s largest and strongest transportation/traffic club’s network. Our very unique social club brings like minded people together to meet, laugh, learn and develop life long relationships and friendships. The Club brings to your fingertips the ability to reach out to fellow members to expand your business, search for new opportunities and simply be sounded by great folks. The energy of our Club events is outstanding and camaraderie is second to none. With the demands of today’s supply chain, and of your individual roles in the industry, why not surround yourself with the “best of the best”. Come, join. You won’t regret it!

It is often said that you get out of thing what you put in to them. That has proven to be true more times than I can count when talking about the Toronto Transportation Club. I have thoroughly enjoyed almost a decade of participating in events with the TTC and can say with absolute certainty that it gets better every year. The relationships built through the TTC are constantly budding and strengthening every year and it is a testament to the hard work of the dedicated board and diverse members that there is a new ring of growth within the next generation every year. It really is remarkable to see the tight-knit community of the TTC continually grow in to a club of enormous proportions that still finds unique ways to give back to the transportation field and future generations of leaders.

I had the opportunity to join the TTC my first year into my Transportation career. Being able to attend events such as the Ladies Lunch and the Annual Holiday Gala allowed me to learn, network, and gain valuable exposure which is invaluable!

Mike McCarron

Joining the TTC 35 years ago was one of the most pivotal decisions in my supply chain career. The long term relationships that were nurtured in fun, social settings helped grow the business and the bottom line.

Neil Christensen

Wow, its hard to believe that I have been involved with the TTC for over 32 years. I remember when I was the “kid” at all these events, and now I am one of the gray haired guys! There is no doubt that attending the events, and being on the Board of Directors from 1998-2006, catapulted the relationships that were built over the years. Many of the contacts became friends, with memories that will last a life time. Whether you are a new member or an old member, there is always new people to meet! We all work hard, and the club has provided the opportunity to have fun, while spending time with everyone in our industry. I appreciate all the mentors that have helped shaped who I am today! Thanks to everyone for taking the time to support the club! Hope to see you all soon!

Peter Stefanovich

Being part of the TTC has allowed Left Lane Associates to meet a broad market of those in the supply chain. Helping build relationships with old and new clients in the mergers an acquisition space is vital to knowing who is looking to buy supply chain businesses and who are looking at selling. We wouldn’t be where we are as a company without the TTC. Thank you.

Being a member of The TTC is a great way to network and build business relationships, especially for newcomers such as myself. It has personally allowed me to connect and learn from its experienced members that have been an integral part of the industry for many years.

Brent Byers

Although the Toronto Transportation Club is a social club it has offered so much more over the years. The TTC has been responsible for establishing contacts with partner carriers, railways, steamship lines, airlines, 3pls, financial, insurance, government and of course a myriad of trades people vital to the operation of our business. When you attend a TTC event it is designed to entertain you nothing more nothing less and it creates a great avenue to build these relationships with the only agenda being to have some fun and let off a little steam. A refreshing break from the day-to-day grind. The TTC asks very little from you but gives so much back.

Being a member of the Toronto Transportation club is a natural decision for anyone looking to be part of a strong community of Transportation professionals. I joined many years ago, and have never stopped meeting amazing people who have enriched me both professionally and personally. The friendships I’ve made with like-minded, down-to-earth people have provided countless opportunities for me to count on others, and for me to reciprocate in kind.

Ola Pearce

I moved to Canada in November 2018.  In my quest to connect with the  transportation industry in Canada and Toronto I discovered TTC through internet search. Becoming a member of TTC gave me the opportunity to know about transportation in Canada and this opened the pathway to re-creating my career in Canada. TTC gave me the platform to network and meet people within transportation industry. Today, through the club, I have made life long friendship that have been beneficial to my career and personal life. Long live TTC.

Tracy Clayson

The Toronto Transportation Club membership is a must have for anyone interested in gaining access to the major players in the supply chain industry in Canada and beyond. Way back in 1996 during my early start up years in business I joined the club and immediately signed up to attend the annual event at the Royal York Hotel. While I knew a fair number of trucking industry members in the Toronto area, getting involved with the TTC and attending events absolutely helped fuel my business. The connection to hundreds of members, some of whom have significantly helped mentor and make important introductions, continues to provide major benefits. While I did spend two years on the Board in the early years when the meetings were held at the Toronto Legion on Lakeshore, the club has exploded in growth and reach and the events and programs all initiated by forward thinking visionaries in the club tells the real story of how business mixed with pleasure makes for a really good time. The last annual club event at the Toronto Convention Centre in 2019 was one of the best ever, I brought a key client along with my US Sales counterpart who both hail from the Detroit area and were blown away by the impressive scale of the event and the overwhelming good cheer of our members; which is precisely the tone of every TTC event I have ever attended. Looking forward to the upcoming virtual event and hopefully in person events to follow and hats off to the Board and especially Denise Cardy for continuing to keep club members entertained and informed.

Mike Crawford

The Toronto Transportation Club “Since 1913” is an awesome organization to be a part of and one that all in transportation and logistics and related industries should be a part of. I personally have enjoyed many years as a member attending many of the Clubs events and have enjoyed them all. The club offers great net-working allowing you to establish business contacts and partners to great friendships. The TTC Directors and Team do a great job promoting , supporting and educating all in the Transportation community and should be commended for their work on the Scholarship program which has helped many students with school finances over the years. A true Class Act Club for which everyone should join!

Francis Lalonde

I joined the TTC almost 3 yrs ago as a Director on the board. I am very protective of my time and this was the first and now only organization I decided to join as I felt it was truly a good investment of my time. This was a great decision, the connections are amazing, the events provide an outstanding platform for idea exchange/discussion or simply meeting new folks in the industry. As a board member I have the pleasure to welcome a few new members to the club and this drives so many great conversations and in many cases so many new connections. The TTC is truly where the industry meets !!!!

Paul Granger

The first 15 years of my career were spent within operational roles where I was able to develop some great relationships and create an effective and reliable network of contacts.  When the opportunity to move into Sales presented itself one of my concerns was that my network although established, was not large enough to support the change.  It seemed like a daunting and arduous task initially but one of the first avenues I explored was attending the TTC events.  The number of attendees at the events, the relaxed and social environment made it possible for me not only to meet many industry contacts but to have some fun while doing it!

Joining the Toronto Transportation Club has been an integral part of helping me grow as a professional in the transportation industry. Our team at Kee loves attending events, allowing them to socialize outside of the office environment and network with leaders in the industry.
