New face for Tran­sit Sys­tems

ABC (Australia) - - NEWS -

Tran­sit Sys­tems has an­nounced the ap­point­ment of new gen­eral man­ager for the New South Wales busi­ness, with in­dus­try vet­eran Len Kidd now head­ing up the state’s op­er­a­tions.

Len brings with him more than 35 years’ ex­pe­ri­ence in the trans­port in­dus­try, with ex­ten­sive knowl­edge and lead­er­ship across all as­pects of a bus and trans­port busi­ness.

With di­rect ex­pe­ri­ence in en­ter­prise agree­ment ne­go­ti­a­tions, in­dus­trial re­la­tions, stake­holder and em­ployee en­gage­ment, con­tract, op­er­a­tional and la­bor man­age­ment, as well as spe­cial event plan­ning and project man­age­ment, Kidd brings both bus pas­sion and trans­port best-prac­tice knowl­edge to the Tran­sit Sys­tems op­er­a­tions, the com­pany says.

Tran­sit Sys­tems CEO Clint Feuer­herdt says the com­pany is ex­cited to wel­come Kidd to the team and looks for­ward to leveraging his vast op­er­a­tional and in­dus­try knowl­edge.

“Len’s ex­pe­ri­ence is a great as­set to our com­pany, es­pe­cially as we con­tinue to strive for­ward and de­liver in­no­va­tive pub­lic trans­port ini­tia­tives,” he says. “We will draw on many of Len’s skill sets to en­sure our ser­vices, fleet, em­ploy­ees and con­tracts con­tinue to lead the in­dus­try.

“We’ll also be leveraging Len’s lo­cal Syd­ney knowl­edge to sup­port our new De­mand Re­spon­sive trans­port so­lu­tion, Bridj, which started in De­cem­ber and rep­re­sents a very ex­cit­ing time in pub­lic trans­port in New South Wales.”

Kidd has al­ready commenced his po­si­tion at Tran­sit Sys­tems, work­ing from the Smith­field de­pot.

Ac­cord­ing to Kidd, join­ing the suc­cess­ful team at Tran­sit Sys­tems is a tremen­dous op­por­tu­nity as it is one of the lead­ing bus op­er­a­tors in the Syd­ney SMBSC con­tracts.

“I would like to con­tinue to en­hance staff en­gage­ment and make Tran­sit Sys­tems the em­ployer of choice, main­tain­ing strong re­la­tion­ships with stake­hold­ers and help grow the busi­ness,” he says.
