For Immediate Release — Roundtrip, the leading digital transportation marketplace for providers and patients, has named Mark Joseph as a strategic advisor to the company. Joseph was Chief Commercial Officer (Global ), and prior to that, CEO of North America (as well as UK/Ireland) and LATAM for Transdev, and Veolia Transportation. Currently, he is the Founder and CEO of Mobitas Advisors.
Joseph advises early- and mid-stage growth companies as well as big strategics in the mobility space. Joseph’s expert advisory includes strategic evaluation, operating advice, financing and regulations guidance, and introductions to investors, partners, and customers. Joseph, who has over 30 years of leadership experience in public and private transportation across the U.S., Canada, UK and Ireland, and South America, will serve as a strategic advisor to Roundtrip for his expertise in mobility and paratransit solutions.
Joseph recently served as the global Chief Commercial Officer for the Transdev Group, a leading private provider of transportation services in 19 countries, including bus, commuter rail, streetcar, light rail, paratransit, taxi, shuttle, and black car. Through more than 15 years in various leadership roles at Transdev North America, he grew the business from $50 million to $1.5 billion in annual revenue.
He has strong relationships across the U.S. with local and national political and transportation leaders, as well as labor and community leaders. He is a strong advocate of the importance of mobility in improving quality of life, economic development and social equity in cities. In 2001, Mark negotiated the sale of Yellow Transportation, his family’s business, to Connex ($3 billion revenue), a division of Veolia ($35 billion annual revenue – NYSE). He assumed the role of CEO for the Northern U.S. In 2004, Mark was promoted to oversee all business activities for the entire U.S.
He led the company through a period of rapid growth, from both new contracts and acquisitions, and grew Veolia from $50 million to $800 million in annual revenues, becoming the largest U.S. operator of bus, commuter rail, paratransit, shuttle, taxi, and black car service with 15,000 employees.
“It’s rare to have the opportunity to work together with a company like Roundtrip,” said Joseph. “Roundtrip is the future of healthcare transportation. Their roots in the non-emergency medical transportation space, in addition to paratransit, position them differently than other companies I’ve seen in the space.” As a comprehensive transportation solution, Roundtrip supports all patient transport types including wheelchair and stretcher vehicles and BLS/ALS ambulance trips. For transit authorities, Roundtrip functions as a simple ride-booking platform that expands mobility options for specialized populations.
“Having Mark Joseph as a thought partner is a really big validation for our platform’s application in the paratransit space,” said Mark Switaj, CEO of Roundtrip. “Bringing on someone of Mark’s caliber will help our company navigate public transportation and map it to health outcomes. His expertise in scaling transportation programs will help us grow and expand our ability to support healthier communities.”
Roundtrip is the leading digital transportation marketplace for better health outcomes. We provide a simple, comprehensive patient ride ordering software that makes available a community of ride providers who complete the transport. The company is leading the industry in reducing patient no-shows through improved ride management.
Roundtrip is built for healthcare professionals — care coordinators, social workers, nurses, and other transport requestors —and offers easy-to-use online and mobile platforms that connect patients with non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT). Roundtrip is a comprehensive solution that supports all levels of transport: medical cars, wheelchair vans, stretcher vehicles, ALS/BLS, all payors, and all trips delivered when and where they are needed.
Roundtrip is doing more than expanding access to care; we are changing how people manage their health in their everyday lives. As we address social determinants of health and aging in place, Roundtrip is driven to deliver engaged and empowered transportation experiences for our riders.
