Tuesday, July 12, 2016
Conference of Minority Transportation Officials (COMTO) President and CEO Mioshi Moses has announced that she will step down from her position effective August 5, 2016. Moses has served since July of 2015.
“I have enjoyed serving at COMTO and learned a lot from the dedicated and hardworking people with whom I have been associated.” she says. “My time at COMTO has been a very enriching experience. I believe that I have done what the Board asked me to do. I have completed my assignment.”
“It has been an honor to serve this venerable and historic organization,” she added.
Founded in 1971 on the campus of Howard University in Washington, DC, the Conference Of Minority Transportation Officials (COMTO) was created to provide a forum for senior level minority professionals in the transportation industry. Today the organization has thirty-nine (39) chapters across the country and members encompassing individuals, organizations, transportation agencies, non-profits and Historically Underutilized Businesses (HUBs), efforts have ensured that members of COMTO now serve in every sector of the transportation industry. Since its inception, COMTO has continued to evolve to become the premier organization for the training, education and professional development of minority transportation professionals.
“When Mioshi came to the organization, she faced a time of leadership transition,” notes COMTO Board Chairman Warren Montague. “With great courage, resolution and foresight, she set high goals and adopted new policies and procedures to address each task before her. The results have been extremely positive. We wish her well in her future endeavors.”
The Board has immediately taken steps to review the credentials of a series of candidates for an interim leadership period, Montague says. “We have also formed a search committee to begin the work of identifying a new, full-time President and CEO.”
