Skoutelas, who will join APTA Jan. 3, is currently national director of WSP’s Transit and Rail Technical Excellence Center and serves as national transit and rail market leader. He joined WSP in 2005 after two successful tenures as ­public transit agency chief executive officer, at the Port Authority of Allegheny County in Pittsburgh and the Central Florida Regional Transportation Authority (LYNX) in Orlando.
