2015 has once again been a very exciting year for Travel and Transport. We would like to thank all of our customers, partners and employee-owners for helping to make it so amazing! Here are our top 10 highlights from 2015:

1. A new kid in town

Well, not exactly a “new kid” as he’s been a Travel and Transport employee-owner since 1994, but Travel and Transport’s President, Kevin O’Malley, officially took over as CEO in 2015 after the retirement of former President and CEO, Bill Tech.

3. Employee-Owners are kind of a big deal
A committee of Travel and Transport employee-owners traveled to Washington D.C. in May for the National ESOP convention. What an exciting night when Travel and Transport was named the National ESOP Company of the Year. Being an employee-owner never felt better!
