Transdev promotes Laura Hendricks to U.S. CEO and Dick Alexander to Special Advisor to Global CEO
Transdev is proud to announce that effective September 8, 2020, Laura Hendricks, formerly President of Transdev Services, was promoted to CEO of Transdev U.S.
Laura joined Transdev in December 2019 and has an impressive array of executive and managerial expertise built over a career that spans some 30 years. She has been President and/or CEO of several companies including Paint Drop, a division of Valspar, a global coatings manufacturer, as well as Coach America, a large motor coach operator, and Merry Maids, a division of Service Master. She also spent many years in executive leadership roles at Cintas and FedEx. At Transdev, she has already demonstrated her strong drive for service quality, consistent execution and building client relationships grounded in trust and transparency.
“I am excited for the opportunities that lie ahead for Transdev, as we continue to navigate through the Covid-19 crisis and beyond,” said Laura Hendricks. “Public transit plays such a critical role in our society and I am proud to be a part of it.”
Simultaneously, Dick Alexander – who served as interim CEO of Transdev in the U.S. since early March – is being promoted to Special Advisor to Thierry Mallet, CEO of the global Transdev Group. Since 2002, Dick has led the company’s business development efforts, as well as many key initiatives and innovations, including building Transdev’s U.S. Autonomous Vehicle team. In his new role, he will focus on strategic projects aimed to expand the company’s global business via acquisitions and partnerships.
“I look forward to continuing to deliver value to the Company in this new global role and at this important time in our industry’s evolution,” said Dick Alexander.
