The Northern Arizona Intergovernmental Public Transportation Authority (NAIPTA) Board of Directors named Heather Dalmolin the interim CEO/GM of Mountain Line.

Current CEO/GM Erika Mazza announced that she was stepping down from the position earlier this month. Dalmolin currently serves as Mountain Line’s Administrative Director, overseeing Budget, Finance, Information Technology, Human Resources, and Customer Service. She has been with the agency for more than 18 years.

As part of the interim management structure, Mountain Line Development Director Kate Morley will take on the Interim Deputy GM role. Morley has been with the agency for more than four years and oversees Planning, Development, and Mobility Management.

The NAIPTA Board will pursue the recruitment of a permanent candidate for the position while Dalmolin and Morley lead the organization during the transition.

“The NAIPTA Board is pleased to have such a qualified internal candidate to lead this agency on an interim basis and keep the strong work of the Mountain Line team moving forward,” said Flagstaff City Councilmember and NAIPTA Board Chair Jamie Whelan. “From keeping the internal operations running smoothly to maintaining positive relationships with external stakeholders, we are confident that Heather and Kate will make this a seamless transition.”

Mountain Line is the transit agency in northern Arizona operating fixed-route bus service on nine routes, paratransit service, vanpool, and seasonal Mountain Express service to Arizona Snowbowl.
