APTA Announces Leadership Transitions

Kathy Waters, APTA’s executive vice president for member services, announced that she will retire effective Jan. 8, following a distinguished career in public transportation that includes posts as deputy administrator at the Maryland Transit Administration, vice president for commuter rail and railroad management at Dallas Area Rapid Transit and manager and chief operating officer for Maryland Area Regional Commuter Train Service.

As an APTA member, she was chair of the Commuter Rail Committee and vice chair for commuter and intercity rail on APTA’s Executive Committee. She represented APTA for more than 17 years on FRA’s Rail Safety Advisory Committee.

Succeeding Waters is former APTA chair and longtime industry executive Richard White, who was named vice president for member services by President & CEO Michael Melaniphy. White assumed his new position on Sept. 14.

Most recently an executive with Parsons Corporation, White has extensive experience in both the public and private sectors, including positions with AECOM, DOT and New Jersey Transit Corporation and as chief executive officer of the San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District and the W­ashington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority.

He was a member of the APTA Executive Committee for nine years. In addition to serving as chair from 2004-2005, he also was secretary-treasurer.

“Kathy’s considerable achievements illustrate her deep knowledge of and commitment to APTA and our industry,” said APTA President & CEO Michael Melaniphy. “She has been instrumental in our success and growth over the years. Dick’s exceptional experience and knowledge are ideal for helping APTA continue to progress and serve our members and the industry.”
