APTA Continues Recruitment of Its Next President

APTA is continuing work on the recruitment of its next President & CEO. All interested persons are encouraged to apply before the closing date of Sept. 22, 2017. APTA is also asking members to identify qualified candidates and encourage them to apply for the position.

APTA’s CEO Search Task Force released the position’s job description on July 5, marking the culmination of eight months of intense work. The APTA Board of Directors reviewed and approved the job description, performance evaluation policy and compensation philosophy at its June meeting during the APTA Rail Conference in Baltimore. APTA Chair Doran J. Barnes chairs the task force, which includes a cross-section of member volunteers.

Among the major qualifications are senior executive experience in the transportation industry, experience working with a board of directors in an ­executive capacity and extensive government ­relations and advocacy expertise.

The task force has compiled a list of the most important attributes APTA members want in their next leader and conducted outreach with the Business Member Board of Governors, transit board members and CEOs from large, medium and small agencies. The task force held listening sessions and also gathered additional information from other APTA members.

The job description is posted here. The ad appears in the classified section of this issue of Passenger Transport.

All inquiries must be made by contacting Gregg Moser of Krauthamer and Associates.

Initial interviews will occur in October with final interviews to take place in November. A candidate is scheduled to be recommended to the board at its Dec. 1 meeting. It is expected that the new President & CEO will start in early 2018.
