Utah Transit Authority

Director of Capital Development

Salt Lake City, Utah

First review of applications: June 28, 2021

Utah Transit Authority is seeking a Director of Capital Development. Because this position bridges the gap between long range planning and actual construction, the ideal candidate for the role will have a deep knowledge and appreciation for both planning and engineering. The Engineering Section currently reports to the Director of Capital Development, so an individual with a background in engineering would be useful but is not necessary. More importantly, the successful candidate will have demonstrable experience building coalitions of stakeholders at all levels of government: local city councils, county commissions, metropolitan planning organizations, state Departments of Transportation, the State Legislature, and the Federal Transit Administration. The Director of Capital Development needs to be comfortable presenting to elected officials and working through difficult issues to ensure each project’s success. An individual with specific experience in public transportation would be preferred, but project delivery experience in other transportation sectors or with largescale developments at the state or local level would also be considered.
