In Memoriam: Pinson, President, Gilbert Tweed Associates

Stephanie L. Pinson, 82, president of Gilbert Tweed International in New York City, a past chair of the APTA Business Member Board of Governors (BMBG) and a former member of the APTA Executive Committee, died June 18. She was a recipient of APTA’s 2001 Outstanding Public Transportation Business Member Award.

Pinson, who joined the company in 1981, directed its Transit and Transportation and Government Services practices. She also was a past trustee and past chair of the Mineta Transportation Institute.

“Stephanie Pinson has been a change agent through her relentless dedication and advocacy for the transit industry,” said current BMBG Chair Jeff Wharton. “She has been an inspiration and has touched many lives throughout her career and her strong involvement with APTA.”

“The industry mourns the loss of Stephanie. She was a well-respected and highly influential member of the public transportation family and she will be sorely missed,” said APTA President and CEO Paul P. Skoutelas.

The BMBG endowed an American Public Transportation Foundation scholarship in Pinson’s honor earlier this year.

During her tenure as BMBG chair, Pinson supported efforts to work with FTA to create international trade missions for APTA business members and to bring international delegations to the U.S., and worked on Buy America efforts. Her election broke ground for women in the public transit industry. She also encouraged business members to participate in APTA’s governance activities.

During her tenure on the APTA Executive Committee, she was vice chair-business members from 1998-2000, coinciding with her term as BMBG chair, and vice chair-business member-at-large from 2000-2002.

APTA invites public transit professionals to submit testimonials of their personal memories about Pinson. Please send items to Adam Martin.
