Jeral Poskey was formerly the Vice President of Taxi 2000 and former ATRA Treasurer and Chair. Now he works with Google. Jeral earned his MBA from Stanford University, focusing on entrepreneurship and specializing in the process of funding and managing startup businesses. He completed numerous projects on the commercialization of PRT, including the paper “TIFs, BIDs, and PRT: Applicability of Tax Increment Financing or Business Improvement Districts to Building Personal Rapid Transit.”
While Mr. Poskey brings project management expertise from his time in the private sector, he also brings important experience from his time in government. He was formerly a congressional aide in Washington DC, working for both the U.S. House and Senate, where he gained an understanding of how the public sector functions. It was during Jeral’s time in Washington DC that he decided to aim his career at realizing the potential of personal rapid transit, enrolling at Stanford for an advanced degree that could help him achieve this goal.
Since then he has served on the board of directors of the Advanced Transit Association (ATRA) for a number of years, becoming its youngest ever officer in January 2000.
