KC Job Alert: Kansas City Streetcar Authority – Executive Director

The Kansas City Streetcar Authority (KCSA), a nonprofit corporation established in 2012, is seeking its first Executive Director who will be charged with overseeing the operations and maintenance of the entire system through a third-party operator, and ensuring stakeholder and neighborhood involvement.

When becomes operational in late 2015, the two-mile north-south streetcar route (approximately 4 miles round trip) will operate on City streets and efforts are currently underway to study opportunities and gain support for future expansion projects.

Without question, this position represents a tremendous opportunity for a dynamic leader to have a significant impact in a city focused on downtown revitalization. Given that Kansas City Streetcar initiatives are in their development stages, it will be necessary for the Executive Director to demonstrate flexibility, maturity and an ability to “scale” within a dynamic, expanding entity.

We are seeking candidates who possess:

·         At least five years of demonstrated experience in an externally focused leadership position is required.

·         A solid base of experience in administrative skills, project management, budget oversight and contract/vendor management is necessary.

·         Given complexities associated with federal funding, candidates with previous experience resulting in positive relationships with the FTA will be viewed favorably.

While ideal candidates will have experience in public transit (e.g., streetcars/light rail, urban transit, bus systems, heavy rail), individuals with applicable skills in government/stakeholder relations, urban redevelopment, urban planning and/or community outreach are strongly encouraged to apply.

For more information or make a referral, please contact Nancy Huckaba at 913.234.1570 or nhuckaba@eflassociates.com.
