The Denver Regional Transportation District’s (RTD) board selected five individuals to move forward as preliminary candidates to interview for the interim GM and CEO position.
The board selected the five candidates from a pool of applicants in accordance with search and selection requirements.
“We received more than 40 applications from qualified candidates all over the country,” said Board Chair Doug Tisdale. “We have narrowed it down to the best possible men and women who are more than capable to lead the agency on an interim basis until the permanent leader is named.”
The board will interview the preliminary candidates during one or more special meetings to be held as necessary. All interviews will be conducted in executive session, commencing later this week.
Subsequently, the RTD board plans to pursue a nationwide recruitment for a permanent GM/CEO.
RTD’s current GM/CEO Dave Genova will retire Jan. 20 after 26 years of service with RTD.
