ALBANY, N.Y. — John BeGasse has joined school transportation consulting firm Transportation Advisory Group (TAG) as a lead consultant and partner.
BeGasse comes with extensive experience in the industry, having spent the past 33 years employed by the nation’s largest school bus contractor. He served in senior-level management in both operations and business development, where he was instrumental in acquiring numerous large corporate accounts, as well as handling school transportation operations in a variety of capacities.
In addition to his everyday work and community service, BeGasse has served on the board of directors in various transportation associations across the country.
“TAG is such a unique and desperately needed resource," BeGasse said. "I was attracted by the company’s mission and am excited to use my experience by helping transportation professionals in both school districts and private companies.”
Charlie Bruce, founder and president of TAG, said that the firm has been focused on working with school transportation operations in the Northeast, but BeGasse will help expand TAG’s footprint into other areas of the country.
“TAG has also engaged with several private contractors to assist them with the development of organizational and strategic plans, and with the addition of John, we look forward to continued growth in this market segment as well,” Bruce added. “John’s industry experience and commitment to the safe and efficient transportation of children throughout North America is unparalleled.”
