Winter Park, FL – Go Transportation & Translation (Go T&T) recently announced that Colby Cotta has joined the organization as Vice President of Operations. Cotta guides Go T&T’s day-to-day account management, compliance, information technology, and product development operations.
He brings nearly 20 years of experience to the company’s management team, most recently serving as Senior Operations Manager at Access on Time. Previously, Cotta worked for Optimal Translation and Transportation as Transportation Operations Manager. At that time, Greg Engelman, who is now the CEO and an owner of Go T&T, owned Optimal, which was the largest independent translation and transportation company in workers’ compensation before its sale in 2009.
“Having worked together before, I knew Colby could hit the ground running,” Engelman said. “His deep understanding of our industry and strong relationships are major assets.”
Like other companies in the workers’ compensation transportation field, Go T&T faced challenges during the early months of the pandemic when many injured workers avoided going to medical appointments and workers’ compensation claims spiraled.
“But we not only survived the economic fallout, but we have thrived, even as our industry experienced a lot of consolidation,” Engelman said. “We’re poised for great success, and Colby will help lead us as we continue to grow.”
Knowing Greg and the company’s commitment to a culture of empathy drew Cotta to the position. “You have to take care of your own employees so they can take care of your clients and their injured workers,” he said. “The workers we serve already face mobility barriers or language barriers in addition to their injuries. I’m looking forward to building up our people so they can best help these injured employees.”
