The ProMiles Team

Tony Stroncheck

Founder, Owner, Co-President and Chairman

Tony began his career in the transportation Industry in 1989 working for Owens & Associates, where he wrote thousands of tariffs which were filed with the Texas Railroad Commission, Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC), and more. By 1991, Tony purchased a fuel tax reporting software from his long-time friend, and now partner, Mr. Tim Pilcher.

In the over 30 years since the partnership began, ProMiles has filed thousands of operating authorities and permits, created the industry’s first online mileage guide, developed pioneering OS/OW custom automated permitting and routing systems, as well as software for fuel optimization, and auditing and reporting for the purposes of IFTA, IRP, Mile Tax and other compliance requirements.

Since its inception, Tony Stroncheck has sought to position ProMiles as the industry’s Regulatory Compliance Technology Leader, by developing the next generation of first-in-class solutions which advance harmonization, roadway safety, infrastructure integrity and efficiencies, benefiting all industry stakeholders.

Tim has had a significant impact on the transportation industry with over 40 years of experience leading the development and management of first/best-in-class regulatory compliance software technology, including Oversize/Overweight (OS/OW) permitting and routing, fuel tax automation and reporting, fuel management, and routing and mapping solutions. 

Under Tim’s leadership, ProMiles has designed and implemented OS/OW Permitting and Routing custom technology for more than 20 states, increasing the average self-issue rate for these states to 73%, with a volume of over 3.2 million permits issued nationwide in 2023.

As demand for ProMiles’ Automated Oversize and Overweight (OS/OW) Permitting and Routing custom technology increased, Michelle’s contribution transitioned to serve as Project Lead for the first five OS/OW projects including the management of stakeholder and contractual requirements, procurement, documentation, and project planning and execution; Michelle played a critical role in establishing replicable standards for future ProMiles’ Project and Management Teams.
