Cubic Transportation Systems (CTS) has a new president: Peter Torrellas has taken over from Jeff Lowinger, who has retired.
Torrellas (pictured below), who is also senior vice president of parent group Cubic Corporation, is a digitalisation veteran who will be responsible for leading CTS’s strategic vision and growing its customer base.
He was previously global business unit president of connected communities at Parsons Corporation, and founded digital arm Parsons X.
He was also managing partner for digital cities and infrastructure at Siemens Advanta - the professional services arm of Siemens - and head of smart cities and communities at Siemens Smart Infrastructure.
“Peter brings expertise across a diverse infrastructure portfolio founded in transportation, positioning him as a great fit for Cubic and the right leader to take our transportation business and Cubic forward,” said Cubic CEO Steve Slijepcevic.
"We are looking forward to working with our customers to serve millions of their riders around the world at this pivotal moment in Cubic’s storied journey – our future is filled with growth and an opportunity to transform our industry,” said Torrellas.
Describing Torrellas as a "recognised thought leader in technology implementations", Cubic says he has collaborated with the United Nations, World Bank Group, United States Conference of Mayors, National Governors Association, National Academies of Sciences, International City and County Managers Association and The Brookings Institution "to discuss the future of infrastructure in cities".
He takes over the role after what Cubic calls "a well-planned transition these past months with Lowinger".
