Malvern, PA—The Transportation Management Association of Chester County is pleased to announce the addition of Lorie Pye as Manager of Finance.
Pye is responsible for managing the financial position of TMACC. Her responsibilities include working closely with TMACC contractors, vendors and member services. She provides and interprets financial information and manages accounting, budgets and grants for the organization.
Pye has a Master’s Degree in Public Policy and Management from Ohio State University and a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics from Hobart and William Smith Colleges. She comes to TMACC with five years of experience in grant administration and finance for the City of Columbus and three years in accounting and payroll for a mushroom farm in Southern Chester County.

Executive Director of TMACC, P.
