Ground Transportation Company Expands to Northeast

muv, a Dallas-based ground transportation and logistics provider for individuals, groups and events, is starting 2013 in growth mode: It has expanded into the Northeast and is now offering ground transportation services in Boston, New York, Philadelphia and Providence, it announced today.

The company, which has a network of providers serving 200 U.S. cities, has named Massachusetts native Lynda Saitta as its northeastern regional business manager.

"Lynda is critical to our growth and success, particularly in the Northeast," said muv President and Co-founder Mark Shrayber, who predicts growth of as much as 30 percent for his company this year. "Lynda really personifies the company's core belief, that we are a people business first, a transportation business second. She is already a fantastic contributor to our current clients in the region since she can work with them face to face, on site or offsite. We're proud to have her join our team."

Said Saitta, "Working with organizations in this region of the country — and working among the people and cities where I've spent my entire life — is ideal. My mission is to share and show how muv takes something as seemingly routine as travel and turns it into complete care package that extends beyond pick-ups, drop offs, shuttles and buses."
