John Ponzio has been promoted to Senior Vice President of STV’s National Systems Group.
A 20-year veteran of the transit industry, Ponzio began his career at STV as a junior engineer with the Systems Group. Since then, he has played a pivotal role in growing the team from four to its current staff of 130.
“Under Ponzio’s purview, the system’s practice has expanded to include multidisciplinary expertise across a broad spectrum of services for the firm’s clients in rail/transit operations, intelligent transportation systems, safety, corrosion control, cathodic protection and security and resilience services,” STV said.
Operating out of STV’s Philadelphia office, Ponzio will manage the Systems Group “to grow the practice into new areas.”
Ponzio holds a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Penn State University. He is a member of the Society of American Military Engineers (SAME), the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE).
“The growth and success in STV’s national Systems practice is a direct result of John’s skills as a leader and his abilities as a professional in the industry,” said Martin Boyle, Executive Vice President of STV’s Transportation & Infrastructure Division. “Through his knowledge and understanding of industry trends, John has positioned STV as a leader in systems design, and has spearheaded our efforts in intelligent transportation systems, security and resiliency services and other areas.”
