We are pleased to announce Pete Borowsky to the GNJMA Board of Directors. Due to a vacancy, per the Bylaws the Board of Directors nominated and approved Pete as a Board member during last week's Board meeting.
With Starr's long history in the development and success of the Association, first with the name of Atlantic City Bus Owner's Association (ACBOA) founded in 1981, then continuing with the expansion outside of AC and beyond New Jersey (hence name change to GNJMA), it is truly special to have Starr back in a leadership role.
Tim Stout, president of GNJMA (and of Stout's Transportation) shared his thoughts on Pete joining the Board:
“Pete will be a true asset to our dedicated and devoted Board. We look forward to working with him as we continue our representations of all the members in GNJMA.”
As President at Starr Bus Charter & Tours, and part of the 3rd generation of family ownership, Pete strives every day to build on the amazing reputation Starr has developed in its more than 75 years in business. During his tenure at Starr, Pete has brought his entrepreneurial spirit to the company seeking not only to continue to grow and improve existing business lines, but also develop new ones. In recent years that has included the expansion of Starr’s tour business to own & operate Eyre Tours, a MD based tour company, as well as the creation and development of Starr’s college break bus service.
All this comes naturally for Pete who spent 20 years in the technology and e-commerce space prior to joining Starr. As an early member of startups including Half.com and CDNOW, as well as established companies such as eBay and PayPal, Pete gravitated towards leading teams to solve complex problems and build excellent customer experiences. This same desire was at play when Pete started his own company Zatista.com, now one of the leading online art galleries featuring over 20,000 works from artists all around the world.
Today at Starr, Pete is thrilled to have a dedicated team who come to work every day looking to exceed the high expectations Starr’s valued customers have grown accustomed to. An important part of this team is Pete’s wife Sandy, whose grandparents founded Starr in 1947.
While Pete grew up and lived in Los Angeles for a number of years after college, Yardley, Pennsylvania has been “home” for the last 25 years. This is where he and Sandy have raised three young men and can be found riding their bikes on the Delaware canal. Pete also enjoys playing soccer, golf, and more recently pickleball.
Pete has selected to serve on the Legislative Committee for the association.
Welcome Pete, and thank you for your volunteerism and service on behalf of our members of GNJMA!
