Staffing Changes at SRTC

SRTC's Interim Executive Director Ryan Stewart
We have some big changes coming at SRTC. The agency's Executive Director of five years, Kevin
Wallace, is stepping down as Director as of tomorrow to pursue some different opportunities and start his own business. A national search will start soon to replace him.

Today, SRTC's Board appointed SRTC Senior Transportation Planner Ryan Stewart as the Interim Executive Director. Ryan has been with the agency for over eight years so knows how it runs and how to bribe- I mean motivate- each of us to work to our fullest potential.

Being down a planner and going into a year where we plan to update our long-range transportation plan and accomplish a lot of other stuff will be a challenge but we feel that we're up to the challenge.
