ITS America President and CEO Regina Hopper has resigned from the organisation and will leave at the end of the month.
She’ll be replaced on an interim basis by David St. Amant, affiliate principal of CAVita, who the organisation says will “assume responsibilities on an interim basis to ensure a smooth transition as the board of directors begins an executive search for a new president and CEO.”
The former TV political reporter replaced Scott Belcher in the role two years ago.
“There are few innovations garnering more attention, and that have greater potential to transform our lives, than intelligent and transformational transportation technologies,” she said. “I am proud of the work we have accomplished in positioning ITS America to continue to lead the intelligent transportation discussion, and I look forward in my next role to supporting the next generation of safe, equitable, sustainable, efficient, and productive transportation systems.”
“The board of directors appreciates Regina’s leadership and wishes her the best in her next role,” said Chris Murray, ITS America Board Chair. “We are excited for the future of ITS America as we continue our work as the leading advocate for the modernization of our transportation system by focusing on advancing research and deployment of intelligent transportation systems.”
