The Transit Wireless Members Committee has today announced the appointment of Melinda White as Chief Executive Officer of Transit Wireless, a BAI Communications majority-owned company, effective May 2018.



With 20+ years’ experience in the wireless and telecommunications industry, Melinda has worked in strategy, operations, finance, product, marketing and consumer/commercial sales.

Ms. White’s most recent tenure at telecommunications company Frontier spanned over a decade from Vice President and General Manager of Electric Lightwave, Inc., a Frontier subsidiary, to Senior and Executive Vice President and ultimately Region President.

Prior to Frontier, Ms. White held senior leadership roles at Wink Communications, Cox Communications and Cellular One.

Reporting to the Chairman of Transit Wireless Members Committee, Jim Hassell, who is also Chief Executive Officer of BAI Communications, Ms. White will be responsible for driving and delivering strategic growth for the Transit Wireless business.

Mr. Hassell said: “I’m pleased to announce Melinda White’s appointment as CEO of Transit Wireless. Melinda’s breadth of experience made her a stand out candidate and I’m confident she will enhance the dedication to excellence, innovation and collaboration that saw Transit Wireless successfully meet Governor Cuomo’s expectations for the accelerated delivery of the network. Since its completion one year ago, the popularity of seamless cellular coverage in subway stations and platforms, along with the public access Wi-Fi network, has continued to grow with 280 million calls in 2017 alone. I look forward to the next level of operational growth in the business under Melinda’s stewardship.”

Of the appointment, Caren Schadel, Chief Human Resources Officer at BAI Communications today said: “In addition to the wealth of expertise that Ms. White brings to Transit Wireless, she is an inspiring and authentic leader who will be a wonderful addition to the BAI Communications group.”

Melinda White, CEO for Transit Wireless, said: “Transit Wireless remains committed to keep New Yorkers connected, with the focus on our customers and our communities. I’m thrilled to lead Transit Wireless into its next phase of strategic growth.”
