New CEOs Named

Stanek, CityLink, Peoria, IL

Al Stanek is the new general manager of the Greater Peoria (IL) Mass Transit District. John Anderson, assistant general manager of maintenance, had served in the post on an interim basis following the retirement of Tom Lucek at the end of 2014. Anderson is returning to his previous job.

Stanek leads the First Transit Inc. team that manages CityLink public transportation for a service area that includes Peoria, West Peoria, Peoria Heights, East Peoria and Pekin. He has more than 30 years of public transit experience, most recently in Racine, WI, where he worked for ­Wisconsin DOT for 19 years and he held management positions with public transportation systems in Sheboygan and Madison, WI.

Baker, Greater Lynchburg Transit Co.
Joshua Baker, a First Transit employee who began his public transportation career as a bus driver, is the new general manager of the Greater Lynchburg (VA) Transit Company (GLTC).

Baker received the President’s White House Champions of Change Award in May 2014 for his efforts in the launch of Radford Transit in Radford, VA, in 2011. His more than 15 years of public transit experience began during his undergraduate days at Virginia Tech. He was a competitor in the 2000 APTA Bus Roadeo in San Francisco.

He joins GLTC from New River Valley Community Services, where he served most recently as general manager of transit and facility programs.

Reardon, KCATA
The Kansas City (MO) Area Transportation Authority (KCATA) has named Joe Reardon, former mayor/chief executive officer of the Unified Government of Wyandotte County/Kansas City, KS, as its new president and chief executive officer. KCATA’s service area also includes Kansas City, KS.

Reardon, currently an attorney in private practice, will join the agency in March. An advocate of public transportation, he is credited with introducing Sunday bus service in Kansas City, KS, still the only community in the state to provide regular bus service on that day. In addition, during his tenure as mayor, the city built the first major public transit center in its history, and he partnered with KCATA to support several other significant transportation projects through an FTA TIGER grant.

He succeeds Mark Huffer, who stepped down as KCATA general manager in August 2014.

Allen, TransLink
TransLink, Vancouver, BC, named Doug Allen its interim chief executive officer after Ian Jarvis stepped down Feb. 11. Jarvis, a TransLink employee since 1999 and CEO since 2009, will act as an advisor to the TransLink Board of Directors until his contract ends in June 2016.

Allen has an extensive background in the public and private sectors in British Columbia, serving most recently as president and chief executive officer of InTransit BC, the company that built and operates the Canada Line.
