New president begins work at Global Traffic Technologies
Jason Lund has been named president of traffic signal priority control company Global Traffic Technologies, LLC (GTT), effective June 1.
Lund, a Chicago-area native, brings nearly two decades of leadership experience to GTT, most recently in the compressed natural gas fueling industry. His hiring follows the retirement of Doug Roberts, who served as GTT’s president following the company’s divestiture from 3M in 2007 through its eventual sale to Greensboro, N.C.-based Gilbarco, Inc. -- a Fortive, Inc., company (NYSE: FTV) -- last year. Roberts will continue with GTT through June as he transitions leadership to Lund.
“I will certainly miss the business and working with everyone at GTT and Fortive,” Roberts said. “I’ll be supporting GTT in a consulting role after June, as required.”
Roberts described Lund as “a seasoned business leader,” with experience in a variety of roles, including president, business unit director, operations director, director of product decorations/graphics, business manager and product manager. Lund holds a BSBA in Corporate Finance and Insurance from Drake University and an MBA from the University of Virginia.
Lund said he welcomed the challenges and opportunities of leading GTT while it continues to grow as the market leader of traffic signal priority control solutions in North America and around the world.
“GTT has a stellar history and reputation and it is poised for continued growth, both domestically and internationally.” Lund said. “I’m excited to lead the team into the next phase of innovation and expansion in the emergency services and public transportation markets.”
