Norm Jester

Herzog Transit Services, Inc. – Senior Vice President of Strategic Partnerships

Norm Jester has more than 47 years of experience with operations and maintenance services for freight, commuter rail, light rail, metro rail, and streetcar systems. In 1994, Norm served as Herzog’s first General Manager on the Tri-Rail commuter rail system that runs between Miami and West Palm Beach, FL. The project marked Herzog’s initial venture into the rail transit operations and maintenance market. The success of this project launched Herzog’s expansion into future transit-related opportunities. Norm’s lengthy career in the industry has covered all areas of rail transit development including engineering, construction, safety, rail car procurement, systems, training, and day-to-day operations for all transit technologies.

His technical experience combined with his network of industry contacts amassed throughout his career made Norm a natural fit for transitioning from operations and maintenance to his current position as Senior Vice President of Strategic Partnerships. In this position, he guides business development and pursuit strategy for three divisions within Herzog.

He earned his transportation management certificates from the Northeastern University Mass Transit Management Seminar and the Chicago Transit Authority Technical Institute. Norm is active in the American Public Transportation Association (APTA) and is also a past board member for the National Railroad Construction and Maintenance Association (NRCMA).
