Our Keynote Speaker for Friday night, June 7, will be NFL Hall of Famer, Anthony Muñoz.

The Success In Trucking Expo is thrilled to welcome Anthony Muñoz as the event’s first-ever keynote speaker. Anthony is a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and his storied career with the Cincinnati Bengals left an indelible mark, as he is considered to be one of the greatest offensive linemen in the history of the National Football League. Anthony has been a champion off the field as well, always devoting his time to giving back to the community. Following his retirement from pro football in 1993, Anthony has become a noted speaker who has shared his life’s story and experiences with audiences across country.

Anthony’s keynote presentation will take place on June 7th during the opening night of the 2019 Success In Trucking Expo. Those attending the Expo will be inspired to hear how the power of hard work and the dedication to reach your goals is a winning formula within the business world – just as it is on the playing field.

Part of a NCAA national championship team during his All-American playing days at the University of Southern California, Anthony was selected by the Cincinnati Bengals with the third overall pick in the first round of the 1980 NFL draft. Over his 13-year career that was spent entirely with the Bengals, Anthony set a gold standard by being named the NFL’s Offensive Lineman of the Year an incredible eight times. Selected to the Pro Bowl for 11 consecutive years, Anthony became a member of the 1980’s NFL All-Decade team and he earned a coveted place on the 75th anniversary All-NFL team. Anthony also played in two Super Bowls for the Bengals.

During his playing days, Anthony was recognized for his tireless community involvement in and around Cincinnati. He was the recipient of the Athletes in Action Bart Starr Award for Leadership in 1990, and was named the Bengals Man of the Year Award for five consecutive years. In 1991, he was honored as the NFL Man of the Year.

Following his enshrinement into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1998, Anthony led the development of an award-winning community outreach platform that has made a positive impact throughout the Greater Cincinnati area and across the tri-state region. The Anthony Muñoz Foundation, established in 2002, is a non-profit organization that engages the tri-state region to impact area youth mentally, physically and spiritually. Since its inception, the foundation has impacted thousands of children and raised more than $10 million for foundation programs and select charities.

A devoted husband and father, Anthony and his wife, DeDe, have two children and six grandchildren.
