Itasca, IL — The National Safety Council has announced the appointment of Mark Chung as vice president of its Roadway Practice Area – effective Nov. 16.

Chung previously served as chief marketing officer and general manager at SAE International, a professional association and standards developing organization for engineering professionals in the aerospace, automotive and commercial vehicle industries.

“We are thrilled to welcome Mark to NSC, where his experience will help position us for additional growth and impact in the roadway safety space,” NSC President and CEO Lorraine M. Martin said in a Nov. 10 press release. “We lose 100 people on our roadways on an average day, and we know that number is unacceptable. As transportation continues to evolve, technology and new forms of mobility will play key roles in eliminating roadway deaths. We look forward to leveraging Mark’s expertise throughout that evolution.”

“I’m excited to join NSC and leverage my business and marketing experience to advance roadway safety for all our stakeholders,” Chung said in the release. “The future of mobility depends on us keeping safety at the core of everything we do.
