Simpson, Little, Nagaraja launch new venture

Posted on April 14, 2009

[IMAGE]Spartan-group-full.jpg[/IMAGE]The Federal Transit Administration’s former Administrator James S. Simpson and former Deputy Administrator Sherry Little have joined with Mysore Nagaraja, former president of the Capital Construction Co., to form a new venture, Spartan Solutions Inc.

The new venture will help private and public sector clients seeking to participate in major capital transportation projects to navigate a highly challenging and rapidly evolving business and regulatory climate, by delivering value-added cost savings and pragmatic management counsel, as well as guidance on the effects of government policies, regulations and new statutory requirements on the public transportation landscape.

“The public transportation industry is poised for tremendous growth, which spells opportunity for public and private enterprises interested in creating successful partnerships that invest in and revitalize rail, bus, and other critical transportation modes,” says Spartan Partner and Co-founder James S. Simpson. “But the business model for these projects is complex, entails significant risk, and requires the ability to look far down the road. There are a lot of moving parts.”

Spartan Solutions has offices in New York, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C.
