On February 8th, Bill Wagner began as the first full-time Director of Mobility Management of South Central New York. Mr. Wagner returns to central New York after serving as Executive Director of the Santa Fe and Albuquerque offices of national non-profit Community Options, Inc. In this capacity Bill oversaw all operations of the two offices that included residential, employment, and day programming.
Mr. Wagner began his human services career in rural Chenango County providing employment and training opportunities for disadvantaged youth, growing a program that would eventually serve multiple counties. His 18 years of experience in job training and workforce development has included implementation of programming in both upstate and downstate New York before going to New Mexico.
"Having spent most of my life in upstate NY, I am excited to return to NY and join RHNSCNY. Throughout my professional career, transportation has often been one of the first or biggest barriers that an individual and their families struggle with. From health, employment, or simply socialization, mobility is necessary for the well-being of all. I look forward to helping individuals overcome these challenges as we find efficient and effective ways to utilize the area's transportation resources and build a stronger community."
