Posted on September 2, 2011

Motor Coach Industries (MCI) named Tom Wagner its new director of business development, Public Sector.

Wagner, who joined MCI Public Sector in 2005, will report to President/CEO Rick Heller. The move follows the July 28 announcement that Michael Melaniphy, VP, MCI Public Sector, will leave the company Sept. 2 to become president/ CEO of the American Public Transportation Association.

MCI Public Sector markets the Buy-America compliant and Altoona-tested Commuter Coach for transit and government uses. It also serves specialty markets with the MCI J4500 University coach and the MCI Inmate Security Transportation Vehicle.

Wagner has been overseeing Public Sector's sales force and specialty markets since he was promoted to his current position in 2009. His recent accomplishments include the market launch of MCI's newest-generation CNG Commuter Coach and the 84-unit CNG MCI Commuter Coach order from LADOT. In his new role, Wagner will now have additional responsibility for the division's operations and support staff.
