WALL, N.J. — Student Transportation Inc. (STI) has appointed Thomas Kominsky to the role of chief growth officer.
Kominsky most recently was the director of industrials investment banking and sector head for transportation and logistics at BMO Capital Markets in Chicago, where he held various positions since 2007, according to STI.
He also served as vice president of mergers and acquisitions and provided strategic and financial advisory services to many of the bank's clients and assisted them in growing their non-asset and asset-based logistics and transportation businesses, STI officials said.
At STI, Kominsky will initially concentrate on leveraging STI's core competencies to develop new business strategies and integrate sales programs for the company's new non-asset group of businesses. This will include the company's new management and consulting services unit, Transportation Sector Consultants, and its soon to be launched joint venture of online driver training modules through the Learning Management System. Kominsky will also expand the company’s SafeStop mobile application, developed for parents throughout the U.S. and Canada.
"Tom will be a key part of the STI senior management team and a tremendous resource with his background in growing businesses, corporate banking, capital markets and strategic planning," said Denis J. Gallagher, chairman and CEO of STI. "He brings an enormous amount of discipline, energy, expertise and financial systems management to STI."
Kominsky is a graduate of DePauw University in Indiana and received his MBA from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. He will be based out of STI's Innovation and Technology Group office in Charleston, South Carolina.
