The Transportation Authority of Marin (TAM) seeks an experienced transportation professional to serve as its next Executive Director. The successful candidate should (1) bring solid experience in capital improvement planning, including an unbiased opinion for achieving the correct balance of transportation modes, and (2) have an articulate and transparent method to make planning concepts understandable for the average resident. The successful candidate will be charged with articulating TAM’s policy directives to the public and will clearly explain tradeoffs to elected officials at the local, regional, and state levels. The ability to make recommendations based on sound research and theory in a uniquely Marin County context is critical. The next executive director should be a consensus builder among the member agencies of TAM and strive for collegial, professional, and mutually beneficial relationships with agency counterparts in neighboring counties, regional organizations, and state agencies. This includes building strong, successful working relationships with state senate and assembly representatives, California Transportation Commission members, the Metropolitan Transportation Commission, and Caltrans. A person well-versed in local transportation funding, proven leadership in mobility management, and high ethical standards as a steward of public funds is paramount.
