Rochester, NY – Medical Motor Service (MMS), a non-profit organization providing transportation services to children, adults, and senior citizens with specialized needs in Monroe County, named Damon Mustaca as its new executive director in January. Mustaca succeeded former executive director Bill McDonald who retired March 31, 2016 after 33 years.

The selection was made after a six-month executive search process and careful review of several candidates. The company's board of directors unanimously selected Damon Mustaca as the new executive director, which became effective April 1, 2016.

“We are very pleased with this appointment,” said board president Christopher Trageser. “Damon played an integral role in growing this agency over the past decade, taking the lead in implementing new technology that streamlined our operations and helped us expand to where we are today. His knowledge of the specialized transportation industry and our operations is invaluable.”

“Damon’s unwavering commitment to the organization, his ability to understand the operational and community-focused aspects of the job, and his deep experiences across the entire organization uniquely qualified him to step into this role,” added long-time board member James E. Morris of Morris & Morris Attorneys. “His vision for the company has already begun to guide Medical Motor Service toward a more successful future and will continue to do so for many years to come.”

Mustaca joined Medical Motor Service in 2002 as Manager of Special Operations, and became Director of Operations in 2004. Mustaca received a degree from the State University of New York at Brockport. He currently serves on the Community Transportation Association of America (CTAA) as the New York State Delegate.
