Prestigious CTP® Designation Awarded to J.J. Keller Associate

Neenah, WI - Product Integration Analyst Jim Ambrose is the latest J.J. Keller associate to receive the designation of Certified Transportation Professional® (CTP) by the National Private Truck Council (NPTC), one of the most prestigious and widely-respected professional credentials in the transportation industry. The CTP Class of 2020 joins more than 1,800 fleet and transportation professionals who have earned the CTP designation since the program’s inception in 1993, proudly sponsored by J.J.

Ambrose was among this year’s 90 honorees, bringing the current number of J.J. Keller associates who have obtained their CTP designation to 15. According to Amy Daley, J.J. Keller Senior Product Manager - Tech Solutions, and herself a 2009 CTP Graduate of the Year (the top class graduate), Jim’s contributions to the Encompass® Fleet Management Platform are substantial. “Jim works with customers and other third party software providers to integrate data with the Encompass® Platform and is also the product owner for the new Encompass® Vehicle Tracking solution. He is a Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) and has a patent related to work with our Encompass® ELD solution.” Ambrose graduated with a B.S. in Mathematics and is a graduate of California State University – Chico.

Mari Roberts, CTP, Senior Director of Transportation, Frito-Lay, Inc., and Chair of the NPTC Institute Board of Governors that oversees the program, states that the CTP designation is a benchmark of excellence earned by a select few, but available to any fleet or transportation specialist willing to make the necessary commitment of dedicated effort. “These new Certified Transportation Professionals have demonstrated the knowledge and ability to understand complex operational and regulatory issues, identify and evaluate potential costs and savings, and develop systems and practices that best meet their company’s transportation needs and objectives.”
