Leadership Team

Board of Directors

An accomplished lawyer in practice for nearly 25 years, Lisa has held a number of leadership roles in corporations, private practice, and the federal government. Most recently Lisa served as MV General Counsel providing legal, compliance, and strategic guidance. Prior to MV she has served as Senior Vice President, Associate General Counsel and Secretary at Energy Future Holdings (formerly known as TXU Corp.); Shareholder, Winstead Sechrest & Minick; Associate Counsel to the President of the United States; Counsel to the Deputy Attorney of the United States; Acting Chief of Staff for the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice; and Associate at Cooley Godward Castro Huddleson & Tatum.

Lisa received her law degree cum laude from Harvard Law School in 1992 and earned her undergraduate degree with honors from Stanford University in 1988, where she was also elected to Phi Beta Kappa. She is a member of the Membership Committee of the North Texas Chapter of the National Association of Corporate Directors, American Bar Association’s Litigation Section, Dallas Bar Association, and Leadership Dallas Alumni Association. She previously served on the boards of Girls Inc. of Metropolitan Dallas, Camp John Marc, and the Dallas Downtown Initiative.

Alex Lodde is a co-founder of MV Transportation, Inc. and remains an owner of the company, as well as a board member. Alex previously served as CEO, from the company’s founding in 1975 through 2000, and again from 2008 until 2010.

Alex’s focus on growth and execution of the company’s mission has remained steadfast. Under his guidance and astute business acumen, MV transformed from a family-owned mom and pop business to an aggressive competitor in an ever-changing transportation industry. He has consistently challenged MV’s executive leadership team to surpass its growth goals while providing excellent service to clients and passengers alike.

An entrepreneur at heart and an architect in spirit, Alex’s vision of building a company that can compete on every level, while still offering our clients a cost-effective solution to their transportation needs, has manifested in the team MV proudly offers as its corporate leadership. Further, his chairmanship role on the company’s board of directors assures corporate governance that is consistent with not only this vision, but the changing dynamics of public transportation and its operating environment. Throughout MV’s existence, it has not been uncommon to find Alex in one of the company’s many divisions greeting drivers during their 4 a.m. pullouts, dispatching routes dressed in a driver’s uniform, motivating employees to achieve their performance goals or meeting with riders to assure them MV is always ready to serve their transportation needs.

Feysan Lodde is the visionary who transformed transportation contracting with the founding of MV Transportation. She remains an owner of the company, a member of MV’s Board of Directors, and a fierce defender of disability rights.

Lodde’s commitment to serving individuals with disabilities, as well as giving back to her community, is fueled by an unwavering drive to improve the quality of life for those most in need. MV’s motto, “we provide freedom” reflects her story, and captures the spirit with which she leads the organization.

Beginning as MV’s first vehicle operator, dispatcher, road supervisor, manager, and community liaison, Lodde exemplifies all that MV represents – a commitment to professional development for employees and dedication to providing the best service possible to our clients and riders. She has travelled the roads – literally and metaphorically – that each of MV’s 12,000 employees travels each day, and has never forgotten what it takes to serve the passenger community.

Instrumental in MV’s historic volunteer efforts during Hurricane Katrina, Lodde spearheaded the company’s caravan to disaster stricken New Orleans in 2005. Under Lodde’s leadership, MV sent 52 vehicles and more than 100 personnel to assist in rescue and recovery operations for more than 2 months. While there, the MV team established shuttles between New Orleans and Baton Rouge for hospital patients to three of the city’s functioning hospitals, and transported military personnel and residents to various parts of the state. Shortly thereafter, Lodde established the Freedom of Mobility Foundation, a charitable branch of the company with the ongoing goal to increase access to transportation for persons with disabilities and seniors.

Today, Feysan Lodde helps guide the strategic vision of MV, working with the Board and its Strategic Advisors to promote the company’s successful growth and maturity. Her most recent undertaking is the creation and leadership of MV’s Blueprint For Continued Success, a committee dedicated to garnering feedback from employees to confirm that MV is living up to its promises to its employees, clients, and the communities we serve. Lodde is a member of several organizations, but finds her greatest joy in helping others through her many philanthropic endeavors, including her annual contributions to organizations such as Lighthouse For the Blind, the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children), Centers for Independent Living, the National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Inc. and many others. Among her many awards, Lodde is the recipient of:

  • 2011 Entrepreneur Award Winner, 13th Annual Madam C. J. Walker Business and Community Recognition Awards Luncheon
  • 2010 History Makers Awards, Powerful Women of the Bay (honoree)
  • 2008 East Bay Business Times, Women of Distinction
