Bill Lhota just can’t get enough of our local bus system. After stepping into the position of President and CEO of COTA in 2004, he originally planned a much shorter tenure, but signed up for a contract renewal through 2010, and today renewed again through June of 2012.
“I am excited to remain on board as we prepare for new leadership,” Lhota said. “It is important that we maintain our forward momentum and I look forward to facilitating a smooth, orderly and effective transition to new COTA leadership.”
Additionally, the COTA Board of Trustees are planning the creation of a new position of Senior Vice President and COO who will work with Lhota and potentially succeed him as President and CEO in 2012.
