Tom Snyder, or “Sarge,” has been a Safety and Compliance Auditor with Austin for 15 years. He will be retiring in the spring, after a long and successful career both with Austin and before that with law enforcement in his home state of Indiana. Tom began his career with the State Police in 1978. His tenure in that position included many years in the commercial motor vehicle division, where he became knowledgeable about hazardous materials. He was also certified as a bomb technician by the FBI.
After almost 30 years of service in his first career, Austin was lucky enough to hire Tom for a Safety and Compliance Auditor position in 2006. We have benefited greatly from his regulatory knowledge of commercial motor vehicles and hazardous materials as a company. Tom truly came along at the right time for Austin, and to say he has helped us improve vehicle safety and compliance over those 15 years would be a big understatement! Those of you who know him well also know that Tom is a fine man and a lot of fun to work with.
Tom and Austin Powder have been affiliated with Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) for many years. The organization is a partnership between law enforcement and the transportation industry with the goal of improving vehicle safety. At their January meeting, Tom was recognized with their Greg Neylon Humanitarian Award for his enduring service and contribution to CVSA over the years.
When Tom retires this spring, he will spend more time with his wife Jane and the rest of his family in Southern Indiana and work on his golf game, which is already not too shabby at all! Please join me in wishing Tom good health and happiness in his well-deserved retirement!
