Connect Transit has found a new general manager.

The Board of Trustees voted on Tuesday to make Interim General Manager Isaac Thorne the permanent GM of Connect Transit. Throne replaces Andrew Johnson, who resigned in March to head to the Champaign-Urbana Mass Transit District.

"I am excited and grateful for this opportunity to serve Connect Transit and the Bloomington-Normal Community," Thorne said. "I look forward to working with our great employees on improving the customer experience, as well as building relationships and partnerships in the community."

Thorne joined Connect Transit in 2007 as a dispatcher and worked his way up to chief operating officer in 2014 before being appointed the interim general manager in March.
