New face for Transit Systems
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.
