Northern Va. Transportation Commission names new executive director

Posted on November 7, 2016

The Northern Virginia Transportation Commission announced the appointment of Kate Mattice as executive director of the transit organization. Mattice has served as NVTC’s acting executive director since June 2016.

Mattice joined NVTC in 2014 as director, transit programs and policy, areas that support the coordination of transit investments across Northern Virginia. She spent 13 years at the Federal Transit Administration, ultimately serving as deputy associate administrator, budget and policy/deputy chief financial officer. In that position, Mattice oversaw the agency’s policy development, budget, performance measurement, strategic planning, and financial management activities. She previously worked as a management consultant on several high-priority energy and environmental initiatives for the U.S. Department of Energy.

As executive director, Mattice will lead an organization that manages more than $200 million annually in state and federal grants for transit services in the Northern Virginia. NVTC also co-owns the Virginia Railway Express and is charged with the funding and stewardship of WMATA. A priority for her is identifying opportunities to expand transit options — such as she did in implementing the Transform 66 Multimodal Project — so that the region continues to thrive.

NVTC, as the voice of transit in Northern Virginia, brings the region together to plan, coordinate, and secure funding for transit systems that are financially sustainable and high performing. It funds and promotes transit in the counties of Arlington, Fairfax, and Loudoun and the cities of Alexandria, Fairfax and Falls Church. NVTC supports five local bus systems (ART, CUE, DASH, Fairfax Connector, Loudoun County Transit), WMATA (Metrorail/Metrobus), and the Virginia Railway Express.
