Transdev Appoints Palle Lansman VP Operational Performance
Transdev announced today that Palle Lansman will lead its Operational Performance team, effective immediately. He has spent the last four years with Transdev in its operational performance group as vice president of business improvement. In this role, Palle worked closely with Transdev contract locations across the country to improve operations and performance on key metrics. He now will lead the group, responsible to ensure that Transdev’s commitments to quality and efficiency are met. He will report to Duane Eskierka, president of transportation and performance.
He will oversee the team that works closely with challenged locations and startups, and will collaborate with various corporate departments in implementing solutions to improve and streamline operations. The group has a broad internal client base, as Transdev operates bus, paratransit, streetcar, airport and campus shuttles and more, in some 200 cities and communities across the U.S. and Canada.
Palle brings an approach based on work flow efficiency, automation, and management processes that add value. His team will continue to support transit contracts, and will expand to include Transdev’s business solutions (campus and airport services) and its IntelliRide business unit. He replaces Roland Pilod who has been promoted to vice president of finance for Transdev Services, Inc.
Palle has been in the transportation and finance management over the last 15 years in the U.S. and in Scandinavia and Norway. He has a Bachelor of Liberal Arts degree in business administration with a focus on international business and finance and is a veteran of the United States Marine Corps.
