Former Marine, Scott Graham named Omnitrans CEO

Scott Graham, Omnitrans CEO/General Manager

(San Bernardino, CA) The Omnitrans Board of Directors appointed Scott Graham as CEO/General Manager effective February 5, 2014, eliminating “interim” designation from his title after eight months on the job.

Graham was appointed Interim CEO/General Manager in June 2013 following the resignation of then CEO/General Manager Milo Victoria. He joined Omnitrans in 2006 as Director of Operations, overseeing a department of over 400 employees responsible for delivering fixed route bus service to the San Bernardino Valley. He previously worked at the Orange County Transportation Authority for 12 years.

As Interim, Graham implemented cost saving measures including organizational changes, reduction of healthcare expenses and cost containment of professional services. He also focused on the deployment of the new “sbX” bus rapid transit service line.  “We are excited to be launching this new flagship service in late April, on time and under budget,” said Graham.

Prior to embarking on a career in public transportation, Graham spent 26 years in the US Marine Corps, serving in progressively responsible positions in Southeast Asia, the Middle East and the United States.  He earned a Master of Transportation Management from San Jose State University and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from East Carolina University.

Omnitrans currently employs about 640 people directly and has 220 contracted employees. Annual ridership tops 16 million on 32 bus routes and paratransit services combined. The agency fleet includes 177 transit coaches and 105 vans and minibuses for demand response.

    I am writing this email after seeing an article posted in 2014 stating that Scott Graham was appointed as the CEO of Omnitrans. I found this while searching for a former company commander that I served under while in 3rd BN 2nd Marines in 1991. At that time, Captain Scott Graham was the company commander of India Company. I was wondering if this is the same person that your article was speaking of, and if so, wanted to get in touch with him to express my gratitude for his superb leadership that I was so fortunate to learn from.

    If you would be so kind, could you forward this on to your CEO for verification. And if by chance it is the same person, if he could find the time to email me so that I might share with him my appreciation for what he did for me. Though I doubt he would remember me by name (as I was one of 150+ Marines under his command), I will never forget him nor the Meritorious Mast I received from him less than 3 months after being assigned to 3rd Platoon, India Company.

    Thank you for your time and consideration in this unusual request.

    Respectfully,
