KCATA names new president/CEO

Posted on February 19, 2015

The Kansas City Area Transportation Authority (KCATA) named Joe Reardon as its new president/CEO.

Reardon, the former Mayor/CEO of the Unified Government of Wyandotte County/Kansas City, Kan., is a long-time advocate for public transportation, credited for the introduction of Sunday bus service in Kansas City, still the only community in Kansas to provide any regular bus service on Sundays.

Under his leadership as Mayor, the first major transit center in the history of the city was built, and a strong partnership with KCATA was forged to support several other significant transportation projects through an FTA TIGER grant.

The national search for KCATA’s new president/CEO was conducted by EFL Associates. The selection process included input from transit customers and regional stakeholders. The selection panel consisted of a bi-state committee of KCATA board commissioners.

Reardon succeeds Mark Huffer, who resigned as KCATA’s GM last August.
