News & Announcements:
12/29/14 Changes and A New addition!
The holidays are as good a time as any to make a few announcements. The first announcement is the promotion of Patrick Heneghan from Director of Training and Development to Vice President. We thought it would be a good idea to promote him last week during one of his training classes. I’m not sure which was more red, Patrick’s infamous red sweater or that Canadian/Irish complexion. But it is well deserved and reflects the work Patrick has performed and the task ahead of him. Please congratulate Patrick if you see him!

A second announcement is the addition of John O’Brien as our new Chief Financial Officer. John joined us during the first week of December. John comes to us with many years of experience as a chief financial officer. He’s spent his first month getting up to speed and is spending some time in the field to learn more about how we do what we do. Please welcome John when you see him!

12/1/14 Welcome new additions! – Jim Flahive & Rebecca Gritti!
I’m pleased to announce that Mr. Jim Flahive has joined us as our new Director of Business Development. As our business grows, he will help in maintaining the great relationships we’ve had with our districts, and seeking out new opportunities. Jim has the talent, experience, and industry know-how to not only help in this area, but to offer his insight into all of the areas of our company as we continue to grow.

We would like to welcome Ms. Rebecca Gritti as our new Director of Human Resources. Rebecca has already been out in the vans, attended trainings, and visited each of our offices. She brings many years of experience and is ready to dive in. Please welcome both her & Jim and help them as they learn the Van Pool Way.
