TransWest New Hires

TransWest Prepares for Next Growth Stage with Key Hires

Mobility services operator TransWest recently added three key new executives: Christie Perrott as vice president of marketing and communications, Andrew Glass Hastings as vice president of strategic partnerships and Janet Zimmermann as vice president of people and culture. The three positions aim to prepare the company for its next stage of growth and strengthen TransWest’s leadership team.

The recent appointments follow three other appointments in the last two years. These leaders were Russell Nickel, chief financial officer; Stephanie Cook, vice president of operations; and Justin Pate as chief revenue officer.

In addition to helping move commuters, workforces, residents and students via shared mobility solutions, the company has played a critical role during COVID. It worked with corporate clients including Expedia and T-Mobile to use passenger vehicles for on-demand food transportation to local communities, delivering more than 1.2 million meals to families in need.

Additionally, TransWest played key roles in vaccine distribution and access to Black, Indigenous and People of Color communities, transport and logistics support of frontline workers, and early-on transportation of manufacturing workers to boost the production of personal protective equipment. Now, the company is helping its clients prepare for a return to offices.
