Fran Inman, senior vice president for governmental relations and community affairs for Majestic Realty Co., was named “Private Sector Leader of the Year” at the recent Mobility 21 Summit in Anaheim, which brought together more than 800 transportation professionals from around Southern California.
Called a “Rock Star Transportation Advocate” by Larry Ehl, the founder and publisher of of Transportation Issues Daily, Inman has long been a champion on behalf of transportation issues at the local, state and federal level, particularly issues surrounding freight movement.
A member of the California Transportation Commission since 2010, Inman is a recognized leader in the push to improve the nation’s failing transportation infrastructure.
“Fran’s leadership and dedication are evidenced in her tackling some of the nation’s toughest challenges related to mobility, air quality and competitiveness in a global world,” said Gary Toebben, president and CEO of the LA Area Chamber of Commerce.
As past chair of the board of the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce and the San Gabriel Valley Economic Partnership, Inman has served on numerous statewide and regional goods movement committees.
She previously served on the Public Infrastructure Advisory Commission, Coalition of California’s Goods Movement Action Plan Integration Committee, and the Joint Mayors’ of Los Angeles/Long Beach Goods Movement Task Force. She is vice chair of the California Business Properties Association, founding board member of FuturePorts, and is a member of Inland Action and America’s Gateway and Trade Corridors.
“What I’ve always appreciated about Fran and Majestic is that they’re in the game,” wrote Ehl “Many businesses across the country depend on the transportation network, but few are engaged in working for adequate transportation funding, and improving transportation policy. They are bystanders. The sidelines are one place you won’t find Fran and Majestic.”
Active in philanthropy, Inman serves on numerous nonprofit boards, including THINK Together, a nationally-recognized nonprofit providing extended learning programs that serve more than 75,000 at-risk and low-income students daily across California. She is also the founding president of the Majestic Realty Foundation, which provides grants and other support to various charitable community partners that work the areas of youth, family, education, health, and violence prevention in the communities where Majestic Realty Co. does business.
