The Savannah, Ga.’s Chatham Area Transit (CAT) board unanimously selected Faye DiMassimo as the agency’s new executive director.
DiMassimo brings more than 40 years of experience with federal, regional, and local public entities, as well as the private sector in the development, management, and delivery of multimodal transportation programs. She is currently the sr. advisor for Transportation and Infrastructure to Metro Nashville Mayor John Cooper and has served as the interim director of the Metro Nashville Department of Transportation and Multimodal Infrastructure.
Prior to Metro Nashville, DiMassimo served with Deloitte Consulting and as the City of Atlanta Renew Atlanta/TSPLOST GM and the director of the Cobb County Department of Transportation.
Notably, she has been involved in public transportation for much of her career. For example, in Nashville, she oversaw the development of a multi-modal transportation plan. In Atlanta, she worked with MARTA and other public and private partners to create the city’s first Smart Corridor. In Cobb County, among other things, she oversaw Cobb LINC (formerly Cobb County Community Transit).
“I am thrilled to be selected as CAT’s executive director and to return to where my husband and I have our home,” DiMassimo said. “We all recognize the potential for CAT in our community and the needs it serves in getting people to the places they need and want to go. It will be my honor lead this team to our bright future.”
