By Staff
GAINESVILLE - Syfan Logistics CEO Jim Syfan was elected to the Transportation Intermediaries Association (TIA) Board of Directors at the recent TIA Convention and Trade Show in Las Vegas.

Syfan, who has worked in the brokerage business since 1972, was a charter member of the first board of directors of the Transportation Brokers Conference Association, the predecessor to TIA. He then served on the first TIA board and later founded and chaired the TIA Foundation. Syfan also served in a number of other volunteer roles with TIA, including Vice President of TIA's Southeast Division, Co-Chairman of the Perishable Commodities Council, and Chairman of the Membership Services and Ethics committees.
