Stephen Goodman, former Regional Administrator for the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), has been tapped as HNTB Corporation’s National Transit and Rail Practice Consultant and Vice President.
Goodman will provide strategic guidance for HNTB’s transportation clients. With 35 years of industry experience, he served previously as Regional Administrator at the FTA, overseeing a portfolio of federally funded transit and transportation projects valued at more than $50 billion, including development of aspects of the Gateway Program. Goodman was also responsible for overseeing the completion of the first phase of New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s Second Avenue Subway and most recently the Grand Central Madison project. Prior to this role, Goodman led federal support through the FTA for the recovery efforts following both Hurricane Sandy and 9/11. He served as Director of the Hurricane Sandy Recovery Office, providing technical support and coordination of more than $10 billion in federal emergency funding. He also served as Director of FTA’s Lower Manhattan Recovery Office charged with administering more than $4.5 billion in funds to support the rebuilding of transportation infrastructure in the wake of 9/11.
Before joining the FTA, Goodman spent 20 years at the Federal Aviation Administration, where he was responsible for defining requirements for facility and equipment investments at some of the nation’s largest airports.
“I am grateful that Stephen is with us at HNTB,” said Ronnie Hakim, HNTB National Transit and Rail Market Sector Leader and Senior Vice President and a 2020 Railway Age Women in Rail honoree. “His work and leadership experience with the federal government and transportation agencies will bring tremendous value to our clients.”
