Ramin Massoumi, chair of the ITS America board of directors, says: “Shailen has been a visionary leader for ITS America and we will miss him. Thanks to his work – in addition to chief operating officer Laura Chace and other team members – the association is in an excellent position and will continue working on behalf of our members to create a safer, greener, smarter future.”
Bhatt says: “It is bittersweet to leave ITS America after all the important work we have accomplished – and at such an exciting time for infrastructure and technology in the United States. I am proud of what we have done to champion safety, sustainability and equity. At the same time, I am incredibly excited by the opportunity with an amazing company like Aecom and to work with the team on transportation innovation on a global scale.”
ITS America expects to name a new CEO later this summer.
