LTK Engineering Services, a global consulting engineering firm, is pleased to welcome former Denver Regional Transportation District (RTD) General Manager and CEO David Genova as its Director of Transit Advisory Services.
Genova, a nationally recognized industry leader who has extensive experience overseeing bus, rail, paratransit, and facilities operations, recently retired after a nearly 26-year career with RTD. In his new role, he will share his vast knowledge and expertise with LTK’s clients.
“I am very excited to join the incredibly talented LTK team,” said Genova. “Working across the table for years, I have always admired the professionalism, expertise, and ability of LTK staff to help get projects done safely, on time, and within budget. I am eager to put my knowledge and experience to work assisting others.”
Genova started at RTD in January of 1994 as a manager of system safety and environmental compliance. In 1998, he became the Senior Manager of Public Safety. In 2007, he was promoted to Assistant General Manager, a role in which he was responsible for safety, security and facilities. He was named General Manager and CEO in 2015. During his tenure, he continued to advance the completion of the FasTracks expansion, a project that LTK continues to support, and implemented “Reimagine RTD,” an initiative aimed at evaluating and forecasting the future of transportation for the Denver metropolitan area.
“I have great respect for Dave,” said LTK President Dominic DiBrito. “As a transit executive, Dave led with honesty, intelligence, respect, and a commitment to his team, and the community they serve. That’s a direct match to LTK’s values and mission. As our new Director of Transit Advisory Services, Dave will bridge the gap between LTK’s top-notch technical experts and our transit executive clients facing tough choices in unprecedented times.”
Genova is a member of several industry organizations, including the American Public Transportation Association where he served on the Board of Directors and several committees and subcommittees. He is also a former US Department of Transportation appointee to the Transit Rail Advisory Committee for
Safety (TRACS) and served on the Board of Directors for Visit Denver – the Convention and Visitors Bureau for the Mile High City.
