HMM's Cipolla inducted into APTA Hall of Fame

Posted on August 31, 2012

Peter Cipolla, sr. VP/business development director for rail and transit at Hatch Mott MacDonald (HMM) has been inducted into the American Public Transportation Association’s (APTA) Hall of Fame. This prestigious honor is reserved for individuals who have long and distinguished careers in the industry, have made extraordinary contributions to public transportation and have actively participated in APTA activities.

“I am grateful to be honored with this prestigious mark of distinction,” said Cipolla. “It is inspiring and humbling to be included among others who have made such extraordinary contributions in public transportation.”

Throughout his career, Cipolla has been an active member of APTA. He has served on several committees, been a member of the board of directors and served on the Executive Committee for eight years.

Additionally, he was a member of the Business Member Board of Governors for four years and served on the American Public Transportation Foundation. He was also Chair of APTA during the difficult 2001 to 2002 timeframe, when the country was still recovering from the 9/11 attacks, after which he set up a special APTA Security Working Group to work with federal agencies.

In his current role as HMM’s business development director for rail and transit, Cipolla leads HMM’s rail practice in developing cost-effective and innovative engineering solutions for North American rail and transit agencies. Prior to joining HMM, he led several key transit agencies in North America, including the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority in San Jose, Calif., and the Denver Regional Transit District.
