Transpo GM Named to Top 40 Under 40
Transpo, in conjunction with Mass Transit magazine, announced that David Cangany, Transpo General Manager, has been named to the 2014 Mass Transit Top 40 Under 40 list.
Mass Transit, the only magazine exclusively dedicated to public transportation, announced their sixth annual list on Monday, September 22, 2014 which honors those professionals who have made significant contributions to the public transit industry. Honorees were nominated by their peers and judged on criteria that included job commitment, industry involvement and contribution, achievement in his or her position and innovation in his or her field.
"Millions of people utilize public transportation every year, relying on it to get them to work, medical appointments, school, social and sporting activities," said Mass Transit Publisher John Hollenhorst. "The individuals chosen for this year's list have been standouts in their respective areas and show a strong passion and commitment that exemplifies the best of the best."
As General Manager with Transpo, Cangany has direct oversight of the entire transit operation, including 120 employees and 60 vehicles. Under his leadership, Transpo will begin replacing its aging fleet with the first new buses in 11 years, utilizing compressed natural gas (CNG). Transpo's partnership with the City of South Bend to build a fast-fuel CNG facility demonstrates the vital impact public transportation has on economic development in the local community.
"David's experience and innovative thinking has transformed Transpo and positioned the organization for growth," said John L. Leszczynski, Transpo's Chairman of the Board. "In the short time that he has been with Transpo, David has restructured key departments of the organization to improve efficiency and service delivery."
Cangany is active throughout the industry, serving as first vice president for the Indiana Transportation Association (ITA) and with the American Public Transportation Association (APTA) as a member of the Bus & Paratransit CEO Committee, Legislative Committee and Small Operations Committee.
Cangany is a graduate of Leadership South Bend / Mishawaka Class 40, member of the Rotary Club of South Bend and currently serves as a board member for Crime Stoppers and the South Bend Symphony.
