A new five-year term for Mohamed Mezghani

With a 30-year career in public transport, Mohamed Mezghani has held a variety of positions within the association, serving as Deputy Secretary General before being selected to lead the Secretariat.

“I’m proud of the accomplishments of the association in the past five years, which would not have been possible without the excellent collaborations between our diligent staff and engaged members. In my coming mandate, I will aim to enhance the membership experience, ensure staff wellbeing, and make the association more resilient while continuing to advocate for public transport and sustainable mobility”, says UITP Secretary General Mohamed Mezghani.

“As Secretary General, Mohamed has made it a priority to widen the scope of public transport beyond mass transport. His vision was to embrace on-demand and shared mobility solutions, to offer door-to-door transport to the end consumer. This has been well appreciated and adopted by the sector. With a focus on showing the importance of people versus technology and engineering solutions, Mohamed has elevated the conversation on the role of passengers and employees as crucial to the future of public transport”, UITP says.

“I’m pleased that Mohamed has been re-appointed as Secretary General of UITP for the coming five years. The past mandate has proven that under his leadership, UITP is in good hands. I’m hopeful that the association will continue to reinforce itself as the international association for all urban transport related matters – growing its global membership and reach in the process” adds Khalid Alhogail, UITP President.
