School Bus Safety Co., Inc. Announces Leadership Changes

HUDSON, Ohio — School Bus Safety Co., Inc. (SBSC), North America’s premier school bus safety and training company, announced that Christopher Walls has joined the company’s leadership team, while the highly regarded industry safety expert and company founder Jeff Cassell is transitioning to a senior advisor role. Cassell will be focused on content creation and ensuring that SBSC is at the forefront of the industry’s latest safety trends and regulations.

“I am thrilled to join the industry leader in school bus safety and training,” stated Walls. “The reputation that SBSC has in the industry, created through Jeff’s extensive expertise and leadership, has laid a foundation that I will look to build upon. We have an exceptional team here at SBSC, and will continue to produce and deliver the most effective and comprehensive safety training programs in the industry.”

Walls, who earned a bachelor’s degree in business from Indiana Wesleyan University, and an MBA from Western Governor’s University, also served in the U.S. Army. His duties included working for 12 years in military transportation, reaching the rank of captain, and holding roles that ranged from maintenance manager to safety manager, to transportation operations manager.

Beginning his career in student transportation in 2011 with Indianapolis Public Schools, Indiana’s largest school district, Walls was appointed director of transportation. After his successful stint there, he moved to a role at a large student transportation provider in 2014 as a regional VP, where he won the company’s “Most Improved Location” for a 40 percent year-over-year accident rate reduction and improved safety culture. In addition to Indianapolis, Walls has managed operations in St. Louis, Philadelphia, Memphis, San Bernardino, Kansas City and Baltimore.

SBSC has a stellar reputation in the industry for its school bus driver safety and training programs. Through its diverse content catalogue, the company has well over 100 available modules. Those range from its nationally recognized Safety Leadership Program to other topics, such as Bullying Prevention, Transporting Students with Special Needs, CDL Training and Student Safety, to name a few.

“Today, SBSC continues to be the industry leader in the development and delivery of school bus driver, management and location safety training materials. The company’s content and delivery combination are the best and most complete solution in the market,” added Walls. “As we look at enhancing delivery methods, taking further consideration into the psychology of how people learn, staying on top of industry updates, and changes to laws and regulations, including the important MAP-21, and how to maximize retention of material; we want to ensure that we continue to be in the forefront and leading the industry.”

Walls noted that, “We will continue to take the safety of school bus transportation to higher levels. I can’t think of a better mission within our field than being tasked with providing training solutions that not only change driver behaviors, but with indoctrination, will improve driver knowledge and awareness. That will ensure the safe passage of our future leaders to and from school every day.”
