U.K. Transport Secretary Michael Bradley is joining the International Transport Association, an international trade group that represents more than 50,000 U.T.A. members.
The U.N. agency is based in Geneva and serves as a forum for transnational trade, investment, logistics, and transportation.
Bradley is expected to become the new U.A.-IRA’s top executive officer in the next three months, according to a report from The Wall Street Journal.
Bradleys announcement comes after a month of tumult for the ITA, whose board has been in place for about two months, but has been unable to agree on a new president for the group.
Bradshaw has been a longtime advocate for increased U.R.I. membership, and he has championed the agency’s role in reducing emissions.
In a statement, ITA said: “It is exciting that our Secretary of Transportation is joining our organization, and we look forward to continuing to work together to promote and advance global transportation security and sustainable development.”
