D.C. firm tapped to find new APTA President/CEO

Posted on April 27, 2011

Krauthamer & Associates (K&A), a DC-area based executive search firm, was selected by the American Public Transportation Association (APTA) to lead the recruiting efforts for a new President/CEO.

APTA retained K&A to replace William W. Millar, who announced his retirement after 15 years with the organization. Millar will retire effective Oct. 31, 2011. 

"Bill has dedicated his career of nearly 40 years to improve public transportation, and we are indebted to him for his leadership and service," said James LaRusch, chief counsel and vice president, corporate affairs, for APTA. "We wish Bill the best of luck in his retirement, and look forward to finding a successor who can follow his lead in expanding APTA's reach and effectiveness."

K&A will begin the nationwide search for Millar's replacement immediately, focusing on candidates with extensive leadership experience in the public transportation and related industries.
