NTTA Executive Director Finalists

I guess it should be expected that all the candidates are from transportation consulting firms, investment firms, or engineering firms.

The five candidates are:

•Rick Herrington, interim deputy executive director at NTTA. He recently spent two years at the private engineering consulting firm HNTB Inc.

•William Dillon, an engineer and a national manager for professional services firm PBS&J. He is a former employee of the Texas Department of Transportation.

•Jorge Figueredo, who is responsible for PBS&J’s toll road business in the central United States, including Texas.

•Stephen McCullough, who was Irving city manager for 12 years. He is now a principal at Dallas-based Public Werks Inc., an investment firm that focuses on public infrastructure construction.

•Douglas Wiersig, an engineer and transportation programs manager for Jacobs Engineering in Houston. He previously worked in transportation for the city of Houston.

Seems incestuous. PBS&J has had issues in the past. From the Denver Post series we know there have been many issues around the country with consultant traffic and revenue (T&R) projections.
