First Transit appointed Fadi Chakbazof as its sr. VP, operations for the west region, effective immediately. In this role, Chakbazof will be responsible for all operations in the west region, reporting directly to Beverly Edwards, COO.

“Fadi has an impressive track record delivering operational excellence and innovative solutions for transit agencies,” said Edwards. “We are excited to add such a talent to our executive team and look forward to him applying his leadership in transportation for our customers.”

Chakbazof has more than 17 years of transportation experience in areas such as operations, finance, legal, labor negotiations, and customer engagement and leadership. He most recently was a sr. VP for MV Transportation Inc.

Nick Promponas, currently sr. VP, operations for the west region, will support Chakbazof through the summer. In the fall, Promponas will assume a new role as sr. VP for all North America transit management operations, continuing to enhance service delivery to First Transit’s customers.

Throughout his career, Dunning has been active with various transit industry associations and trade groups, and will continue to make significant contributions to customers until the end of year. First Transit recognizes the extent of Dunning’s impact on the transportation industry and communities across North America.
