Movability would like to thank Maanya Condamoor for her service on our board. During Maanya's time on the board, she was a passionate advocate for sustainable transportation. As the Global Operations Strategy Associate at Dell, she served as an internal advocate for alternative employee transit options at Dell. She also worked on compiling a repository of all existing alternative transit resources for employees. We are sad to be losing her, but wish her the best in her new role as General Manager for Spin's San Jose market in California.
Happily we are also welcoming a new board member, Sam Sargent. Sam serves as Capital Metro’s Deputy Chief of Staff. A native South Austinite, Sam is a lifelong advocate for transit and equitable mobility. He previously served as program manager in the agency’s Community Engagement office. A lawyer by training, he spent time on the staff of U.S. Representative Lloyd Doggett, the Travis County District and County Attorney’s office, and with a small law firm in Austin.
Sam holds a Bachelors Degree in Political Science from Boston University and a Juris Doctor from Boston University School of Law. He is an active runner and rower, and lives in Austin with his wife, Orsi, and dog Gracie. Sam is an Austin Under 40 finalist and a 2019 Mass Transit 40 Under 40 award winner.
