COMTO Congratulates Phil Washington as LA Metro's new CEO

COMTO congratulates Phil Washington, who is taking the helm of the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transit Authority, also known as LA Metro. For the past six years, Washington has led Denver, Colorado's Regional Transportation District (RTD) as General Manager and CEO to great success and much acclaim. Nine years before that, he served as RTD's Assistant General Manager. Washington's selection was announced by Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, who chairs the LA Metro Board. Mayor Garcetti introduced Washington at a morning news conference on Thursday, March 12, 2015. Calling him the "ideal person," Washington will manage LA Metro's $36 billion transportation infrastructure program. Noting Washington's track record of "maximizing project efficiency," Mayor Garcetti said Washington will serve Metro riders well.


Washington said he had mixed feelings leaving RTD and the Denver metro region, and was "privileged" to have served the RTD Board, RTD staff, and the people of Denver. But, he is honored to have this unique opportunity. Under Washington's leadership, Denver's transportation system became a national model because of its innovations and regional collaborations, earning him national and international honors.


Denver looks to name an interim general manager as soon as possible and begin its recruitment for a new person at the helm. ”Phil, a long time COMTO member, has done so much to help level the playing field for minorities in the transportation industry," stated Robert Prince, COMTO Board Chair. "This move is a testament to a true professional. We wish him well.”
