Mr. Dickerson brings a wealth of public sector experience, in addition to time spent in the oil and gas industry. He is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, Alabama Society of Certified Public Accountants and the Alabama State Board of Certified Public Accountants.
“We’re grateful to have Glenn joining our staff as we strive to be one of the best public transportation systems in the nation. A strong internal team leads to success in every aspect of our system and I believe Mr. Dickerson will be a welcomed addition throughout the authority as we move forward in a positive direction, for our riders, the community and our employees,” shared Interim Executive Director Martin.
