Kelleher to Lead Board

Gov. M. Jodi Rell recently appointed the president and chief executive officer of Danbury-based Cendant Mobility as chairman of Connecticut’s Transportation Strategy Board.

“This appointment by Gov. Rell is truly an honor,” said Kevin Kelleher, Cendant’s top man and the board’s new chairman. “I am privileged to serve the great state of Connecticut in this capacity. The economic and social significance of the state’s transportation system cannot be overstated. Gov. Rell recognizes this, and as a longtime Connecticut resident, I share the governor’s continued commitment to addressing the crucial transportation challenges facing our state.”

The TSB was created in 2000 to help formulate a comprehensive transportation plan for the state. Kelleher will succeed current TSB Chairman Oz Griebel, who has served as chairman since the TSB’s inception.

“Oz served the board with great distinction for many years,” Kelleher said. “He understood that transportation is in many respects the lifeblood of our state and used this understanding to help drive the TSB’s important efforts thus far. I look forward to working with the governor and members of the TSB to build on his impressive record as chairman.”

As TSB Chairman, Kelleher’s key priorities will be to create a transportation system that continues to attract and retain businesses while protecting the environment and maintaining safety.

Kelleher has served as a corporate member of the advisory board of the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association and on the board of directors of the Inner City Foundation for Charity and Education. He has been actively involved at Fairfield University and The United Way and has been a key player in the Connecticut Minority Supplier Development Council Trade Expo and Business Opportunity Fair.
