Transblue CEO Dave Wescott has joined the Snow and Ice Management Association (SIMA) board of directors. Wescott joins John Janes, a fellow certified snow professional (CSP) as first-time board members, while Laura Ingram, CSP, has risen to Chair of the Board for 2020.
The SIMA board of directors sets the organization’s strategy for the coming year, including evaluating current policy and setting policies for the future. SIMA, being the leader in snow and ice management, is the source for much of the industry’s educational and technical knowledge, and a strong board of directors ensures that that information is clear, useful, and beneficial to everyone in the industry.
“I am very excited to be joining the board of directors,” says Wescott. “I believe that SIMA is the leader in snow and ice best practices, sustainability, training, and overall business improvement for businesses focused on snow and ice as an income source.
Wescott, along with the other members of the board, sets the standards snow and ice professionals adhere to throughout the year. With years of experience in construction and snow and ice management, he brings authority and real on-the-ground expertise to the position, giving him a good understanding of what snow providers need from SIMA and vice-versa.
“I am excited to share my knowledge and expertise with an industry that has given me so much,” Wescott says. “I want to give back and help raise the bar across the board within our industry. The better we all perform, the higher our industry will be thought of. I am a believer in leading through education and believe we will do some exciting things as we dawn this new decade!”
