“Joe will be your primary contact with PTSI going forward”

Syracuse, NY, March 7, 2022. Ms. Nikki Hughes, President of the PTSI Board of Directors announced today that Joseph LaMarca has been selected as the new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) for the company. An experienced school transportation director and business leader, Joe succeeded Kathy Furneaux and assumed all PTSI management responsibilities on January 18, 2022. After a long and rewarding career as Executive Director, Kathy Furneaux will take a part-time consulting role with PTSI and enjoy her well-deserved retirement in the years to come.

Joe’s school transportation career started in 1985 as a driver for Golden Arrow Bus Service. After six months, he was promoted to a management trainee, and over the next seven years he experienced every operational level within the transportation department which set the foundation for his career. In 1993 he was promoted to Director of Transportation where he served three New York State school districts over his 36-year career.

As CEO of PTSI Joe will manage internal and external operations and maintain customer service to achieve maximum customer satisfaction, and he will oversee the day-to-day operations with an emphasis on fiscal responsibility.

“Joe is a take charge kind of person that will move the organization in the right direction, at the right time” said Jaime Gallego, Treasurer for PTSI. All PTSI Board Members agree, “Joe will be a good fit for the company” said Kanoe Cockett, Secretary for PTSI.
