Meet Our Keynote Speaker: Phil Washington

As CEO of the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority, Phil Washington manages a total balanced budget of $7.2 billion for FY20, is responsible for overseeing between $18-$20 billion in capital projects, and provides oversight of an agency with nearly 11,000 employees that transports 1.2 million boarding passengers daily riding on a fleet of 2,000 clean-air buses and six rail lines.

Washington was the CEO of Denver Regional Transportation District (RTD) where he led and implemented the FasTracks program. Under his leadership, Denver’s West Corridor Rail Line project was completed under budget and eight months earlier than scheduled, and the award-winning Denver Union Station project was completed five months early and is realizing tremendous revenue/value capture from the surrounding development.
