The TransPar Group of Companies recently added key leadership, operations, and sales personnel in two of its three business units.
TransPar, a partnership of organizations spanning the school transportation industry, offers products and services designed to improve student safety and the cost and quality of school transportation.
Within the TransPar business unit, the industry’s management and staffing services business, Doug Martin has been named president. He is taking over for his father and 35-year school transportation industry veteran, Kyle Martin, who cofounded TransPar more than 20 years ago. Doug has been involved in a core leadership role with TransPar over the past 10 years.
TransPar has also promoted Scott Allen to chief operating officer. Allen brings more than 30 years of experience in school transportation operations as a manager, contractor, and industry consultant.
“TransPar was founded over 20 years ago to assist clients with developing the safest and most reliable school transportation programs possible,” Kyle Martin said. “And it is with those same principles in mind that we are transitioning our leadership to Doug and Scott. Recently, we have expanded both our geographic reach and service-line breadth, due in large part to their hard work. Moving forward, through their leadership, and in collaboration with our new partner companies, we believe that Doug and Scott are best equipped to lead this business into the next stage of its growth.”
“I am honored and humbled to take the reins of a company that has provided tremendous value to its school transportation clients for the past 21 years, and to continue building a company that’s making a real difference in the school transportation industry,” Doug Martin said.
In addition, Transportation Services Co. (TSC), a member of the TransPar Group of Companies that provides full-service fleet management, announced that Chris Vincent has been hired as vice president of sales. Vincent joins the TSC leadership team with Tod Eskra, who also recently joined the organization.
Vincent brings a 15-year background of fleet management expertise to TSC, having worked closely with Eskra at Enterprise Fleet Management. Vincent’s most recent role at Enterprise was as a director responsible for starting and building Enterprise Fleet in the Midwest.
