Kelsian Group Limited (ASX:KLS) (“Kelsian”) advises that Graeme Legh, Group Chief Development Officer has been appointed to the position of Chief Executive Officer, All Aboard America! Holdings, Inc. (AAAHI), replacing the current Chief Executive Officer, Bill Trimarco who is retiring.

The acquisition of AAAHI was completed on 1 June 2023 and prior to the approach by Kelsian, Bill Trimarco had announced his intention to retire. Bill Trimarco has indicated his intention to continue to assist with transition of the business in a non-executive role on retirement from his Executive role, which will ensure Kelsian can continue to benefit from his significant knowledge and connections.

Graeme joined Transit Systems in 2009 in Business Development, and in 2020 he was appointed as the Chief Development Officer responsible for company growth, execution of tenders, acquisitions, mergers and divestments. He has built a team of exceptional business development professionals and led numerous successful bids and acquisitions for the Group, including the transaction between Transit Systems and SeaLink Travel Group in 2020, entry into the Sydney and Melbourne bus markets and our international expansion into the United Kingdom, Singapore, and the United States. Graeme was instrumental in the acquisition of AAAHI and is ideally credentialled to now lead the integration and help realise the potential of Kelsian’s new platform in the large and attractive US market.

Managing Director and Group Chief Executive Officer Clint Feuerherdt said: “Graeme has been pivotal to the success and significant growth of our business, and I have no doubt that he will be an excellent Chief Executive Officer at AAAHI,” he said.

Graeme will be relocating to Denver, Colorado with his family this month and he will officially start on 1 September 2023, working alongside the current Chief Executive Officer of AAAHI, Bill Trimarco, to ensure a smooth transition.
