EMBARK: Scroggins Honored in National Top 40 List

EMBARK public information officer Michael Scroggins joins an elite list of 40 professionals under the age of 40 who are being recognized nationally for their contributions to the public transit industry.

Scroggins joined EMBARK in 2008 where he is responsible for successfully leading all aspects of marketing and public information, information technology, and customer relations programs. During that time, he has led several large campaigns including the launch of the EMBARK brand, rebranding the Spokies bike-share program and publicizing recent service improvements including night routes, increased frequency and the introduction of more mobile-friendly technology.

“This award highlights Michael’s innovation and ongoing commitment to making transit an easy choice for our community,” said Jason Ferbrache, EMBARK administrator. “Michael understands how important public transit is to our riders; relying on it to get them to work, school, medical appointments, social and sporting activities. He is constantly looking and listening for ways to improve public transit services and our communications with the diverse audiences we serve.”

The public transportation magazine Mass Transit annually recognizes individuals who have shown a capacity for innovation, demonstrated leadership and a commitment to making an impact in transit. Winners are selected from nominations.

“With an aging workforce and so many more retirements in our industry every year, it’s wonderful to see the high caliber of industry professionals in the next generation,” said Mass Transit Editor Leah Harnack. “It was challenging to narrow it down, but we are confident that this exclusive Mass Transit Top 40 Under 40 list is made up of professionals who are extremely deserving of this honor and we expect they will continue to play a significant role in public transportation for decades to come.”

Winners are showcased in the September/October cover feature of Mass Transit magazine and online at Mass Transit and are published by SouthComm Business Media.
