Central Midlands Regional Transit Authority (The COMET) is pleased to announce the promotion of Pamela Bynoe-Reed to Director of Marketing & Community Affairs/Public Information Officer. She will report to John C. Andoh, Executive Director/CEO.

In addition to spearheading The COMET’s COVID-19 and crisis communications, she directed the organization’s “Saving Sarah’s Seat” campaign, which highlighted the contributions of civil rights pioneer, Sarah Mae Flemming, and the current “Don’t Miss Your Shot” campaign, which educates the public on how to get a FREE ride to their vaccination appointments.

“Ms. Bynoe-Reed has done excellent work in increasing brand awareness of The COMET, leading the efforts of our marketing plan, and forming the many necessary community relationships to show that The COMET is a part of the community,” said Executive Director/CEO, John Andoh. “I am pleased to have her as a new director with the expanded role of government affairs and being the liaison to our Board of Directors.”

Bynoe-Reed brings more than 15 years’ experience in the areas of Marketing, Communications, and Public Affairs and has worked at Prisma Health and SCANA Corporation (now Dominion). She received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism and Mass Communications from the University of South Carolina with a minor in Media Arts.
