Australian company Road Manager today announced the appointment of former journalist and government advisor Marie Scoutas to its executive team to promote its new US operation.
Road Manager continues to grow its international footprint in cities including Boston, Seattle, London and Sydney.
Co-founders and managing directors Christine Keyes and Brendan McNally said the appointment of Ms Scoutas was a coup for the traffic software company as it looks to expand its profile in growing markets.
“With extensive experience in communications and government, Marie is well placed to take Road Manager to the next level in our expansion,” Ms Keyes said.
“She joins Road Manager with a frontline understanding of road projects from the installation of a new set of traffic lights to the complexity of major new motorways such as Sydney’s WestConnex,” she said.
“We look forward to the chapters ahead as Road Manager meets future technology and the changes coming quickly down the pipeline,” Mr McNally said.
“When you combine great traffic plans with a passion for good public communication you end up with a major asset to our clients,” he said.
“Road Manager makes the disruption that comes with infrastructure delivery as easy as possible on road users and helps keep projects on time and on budget,” Ms Scoutas said.
“Our platform exists to help ensure cities keep dreaming big and keep taking on ambitious projects for the good of their communities.
“We’re transforming the existing pen and paper system into an affordable cloud based plan that can be drafted, approved and adjusted live.
“It’s a long overdue change for the sector and a change strongly validated when you see a traffic worker’s face light up as she learns what Road Manager can do,” Ms Scoutas said.
