Craig Hughes Named Director of Transportation

On behalf of the AppalCART Board of Directors, it is my pleasure to announce the appointment of Craig Hughes as the new Director of Transportation at AppalCART.

Craig comes to AppalCART from the North Carolina Department of Transportation’s Public Transportation Division, where he served as a Mobility Development Specialist.  In that role he provided operations, planning and administrative assistance to public transportation systems and transportation planning organizations in northwestern North Carolina.  Prior to his role at DOT, he was a Transportation Planner with the High Country Council of Governments, a Transportation Planner with the City of High Point and a Land Use Planner with Rockingham County, NC.  Craig brings a wealth of transportation experience and a proven track record of accomplishments that will serve him well as he begins his leadership responsibilities at AppalCART.

Craig will assume his new duties at AppalCART June 22, 2015, succeeding Chris Turner, who served AppalCART with distinction for 30 years.

Please join me in welcoming Craig to AppalCART!

Greg Lovins
Chair, AppalCART Board of Directors
