A Vision at Scale: Welcoming Liz Sanchez as EVP, School Transportation
By Vivek Garg, President and COO
At Zum, we are working on an audacious mission of reimagining student transportation, the largest mass transportation system in the U.S., mobilizing over 27 million students everyday. Our goal is to modernize this essential, yet antiquated part of society and make it smart, sustainable, safe and efficient. We recently announced $130 million in Series D funding from SoftBank to accelerate this vision, and continuing in the same momentum, we are bringing in strong leaders to our team who can help Zum build and scale even better and faster.
In that spirit, today, I’m thrilled to announce that Liz Sanchez has joined us as the EVP of School Transportation. In this critical role, Liz will be responsible for building and scaling our student transportation operations and overall national footprint.
I’ve known Liz now for several years, and have always admired her work, as well as the trust and respect she commands from customers, her teams, and the industry overall. She has over 30 years of experience and is well known to be among the top operators in the student transportation industry. As founders, it is our true privilege to partner with a leader like her and leverage her expertise in realizing our common vision.
Liz has shared her own thoughts on joining Zum here.
Please join me in welcoming Liz to the Zum family. We are just starting and can’t wait to share all the amazing things we accomplish together!
