Company: VIA Metropolitan Transit
Location: San Antonio, Texas

Job ID: 108929
How would you like to live in a state with no income tax, in an affordable city that U.S. News & World Report ranked in its top 15 best places to live for 2018 and ranked seventh in Travel and Leisure’s Top 15 Cities in the United States?

KL2 Connects LLC has been retained by VIA Metropolitan Transit to recruit the agency’s next Senior Vice President of Planning and Development. VIA is at an exciting point in its history, and this position will play a key role in its future. Reporting to VIA’s CEO, the winning candidate will direct all aspects of VIA’s planning and capital expansion program, including high capacity transit projects and other capital investments.

In addition to overseeing VIA’s day-to-day transit service, strategic planning, real estate, engineering, and construction and development functions, he/she will participate in long-term public transportation decisions (providing insight into operational impacts), effectively manage resources and capital assets (including projects funded by the Advanced Transportation District), and provide safe, reliable, efficient, and customer-friendly transit service.

This position requires a Bachelor’s (preferably related to areas of departmental responsibility or business administration); ten years of experience in progressively responsible positions (that provide an adequate background in a broad range of functions pertaining to multi-modal mass transit, particularly in areas related to high capacity transit expansion projects); seven years of experience in a senior management position; and experience in strategic planning, service planning, and capital construction and development. Registration as a professional engineer or certified planner is preferred, and equivalent combinations of education and experience may be acceptable.

This is an excellent opportunity with a progressive agency that offers attractive compensation, relocation, and equal opportunity. VIA values diversity at all levels of its workforce — women and minorities are encouraged to apply. To be considered, go to, select the appropriate listing, and upload a letter of interest, resume, salary history, and 4-5 professional references.
