The award is given to a public transportation business member who has made outstanding lifetime contributions to the public transportation industry.

Schneider's four decades in the transportation industry began with Los Angeles DOT and included more than 30 years with Parsons Brinckerhoff, where he served as Executive Vice President and a member of the Board of Directors. He joined HDR in 2012, when the company he cofounded in 2006, InfraConsult LLC, was acquired by HDR. Mike currently serves HDR as global director of professional services and a leader of the firm's strategic advisory practice. His career in infrastructure development and transportation has spanned urban and intercity transit and rail, highway and toll road development, financing programs, public-private partnerships, and strategic planning for infrastructure investment. Schneider has served throughout his career as a developer, owner and advisor on numerous public-private partnership programs around the world.

Schneider is a longtime member of the APTA board of directors and founder and immediate past chair of the Committee on Public-Private Partnerships. He recently received a lifetime achievement award from the American Road and Transportation Builders Association for his contributions in public-private partnerships in delivery of transportation projects. Previously he was honored as an outstanding private sector entrepreneur in the utilization of innovative project finance and delivery for infrastructure project development.

Schneider currently serves on the board of directors of WTS International, a global organization dedicated to advancing women in transportation. He has also been involved with numerous professional and industry organizations and spoken and lectured around the world on program management, business development, and leadership in the infrastructure field.
