NETS Names McKillips Executive Director

September 23, 2016


The Network of Employers for Traffic Safety (NETS) has appointed Joseph McKillips as its executive director to replace Jack Hanley, who has retired.

McKillips, who formerly oversaw global fleet safety operations at Abbott, earned the role following a nationwide search. He has served on the NETS board since 2008. He was board chair in 2014 and 2015.

McKillips brings more than 26 years of occupational health and safety experience across Abbott’s manufacturing, R&D and commercial business sectors with emphasis in the areas of process safety, loss prevention and global road safety.

He was also a participating member of the ANSI/ASSE Z-15.1 accredited standards committee on safe practices for motor vehicle fleet operations. In addition to successfully leading the organization’s fleet safety programs, he led Abbott's efforts to implement a comprehensive cell phone while driving ban in 2013.

He also championed Abbott's initiative to make road safety a component of its corporate social responsibility program through school-based road safety initiatives across India and helmet safety campaigns for children and families across Vietnam.
