Central Transport was later acquired by Superior Carriers, based in Oak Brook. Fletcher was promoted to chief executive in 2008, during which time he also served as treasurer for the National Tank Truck Carriers (NTTC) association.
“Under his leadership, Superior enjoyed outstanding performance until his retirement in June of 2018,’’ company officials said.
