DANIEL ISLAND, S.C. — Student Transportation Inc. (STI) is honoring its employees during its annual Employee Appreciation Week, taking place this week.
In support of the companywide celebration, STI released a video message on its website featuring Denis Gallagher, chairman and CEO of STI, expressing his appreciation to the more than 14,500 employees of STI and its operating subsidiaries, Student Transportation of America and Student Transportation of Canada.
"We would not be the company we are today without each and every one of our employees ... our family members. The generosity and care that they display in the communities we serve is incredibly impressive," Gallagher said. "They will continue with their best effort as we embark on our new vision and maintain being the leaders in this industry.
“People, innovation and technology are three key elements that are defining STI and setting us apart even further from the rest and I am very grateful for all that our employees do regarding these elements while helping our new vision move forward."
