Greater Dayton RTA selected Robert Ruzinsky as its new chief capital officer.
In this role, Ruzinsky will be responsible for agency asset management, capital program planning, development and execution. He will also manage regulatory compliance of federal, state and local funding programs. His work group will also conduct reviews and provide support for construction and facilities maintenance activities.
The newly created position was developed to meet the competitive federal grants environment and challenging financial capital needs of the agency.
Ruzinsky began his career with RTA in 1987 in the agency’s accounting group and quickly moved up through the department holding various positions including sr. accountant, accounting supervisor, controller and capital controller. He left RTA in 2002 and started a transit consulting business specializing in grants, funding and management issues helping various transit systems across the country, a role which he continues today on a limited basis.
Ruzinsky returned to RTA several years ago as the finance manager on a part-time basis, in charge of grants, federal reporting, and payroll staff while also serving as the chief financial officer of the Butler County RTA.
