Stephanie Pinson, president of global executive search firm, Gilbert Tweed International, has passed away.

"The BMBG honored Stephanie through an APTF Scholarship at the BMBG Meeting last January. She has been an inspiration for many of us and a change-agent for the transit industry. The BMBG Workforce Development Committee was formed as a result of Stephanie's "Sputnik" working group initiative to refocus on our workforce," said Jeff Wharton, chair APTA Business Member Board of Governors.

"I am humbled and honored to have known and worked with Stephanie; she was a trail-blazer! I am proud to have nominated her to the BMBG organization and subsequently to Chair of the BMBG; through that she went on, as the first woman Chair of the BMBG, to serve the Business Members in the transit industry in many capacities for many year. Chair of the BMBG is just one of many examples of her distinguished career and service. It is simply amazing that a large percentage of the Transit Agency CEOs owe a heartfelt note of appreciation to Stephanie for having recruited them to top management positions in Transit Agencies," said David L Turney, CEO/Founding Principal EEI Strategic Consulting LLC 

Pinson was with Gilbert Tweed since 1981 and was a member of the Board of Directors. She had in-depth experience as a search consultant to the highly complex insurance industry, where she specialized in change management. She has also did significant work with consumer goods and merchandising companies as well as the instrumentation and medical device industries, bringing with her a thorough background in sales, marketing, R&D, engineering and concurrent manufacturing processes.

Pinson was the Director of the firm's Transit and Transportation practice and Government Services practice, having consulted to large and small authorities, aviation and other transportation providers and their global suppliers, as well as to the Departments of the Interior and Transportation. In all cases, she created unique solutions to complex senior staffing problems within all functional areas.

Active in industry and community affairs, Pinson represented Gilbert Tweed at APTA, where she served as vice chair-business members and is a past-chair of the Business Member Board of Governors. During her tenure with the BMBG, she was named APTA’s ”Outstanding Business Member."
