How would you like to live in a city that U.S. News & World Report ranked in its top 25 out of 100 best places to live for 2017? KL2 Connects LLC has been retained by VIA Metropolitan Transit (San Antonio, Texas) to recruit the agency’s next Senior Vice President of Public Engagement. VIA provides San Antonio and its surrounding communities with bus and paratransit services. With strong local support and excellent growth potential VIA is at an exciting point in its history, and this position will play a key role. The winning candidate will be responsible for all public relations and marketing including conducting community outreach and events and developing/administering the marketing and communications plan and budget. The Senior Vice President will have extensive contact with the community and other government agencies and will be responsible for drafting and implementing legislative priorities. The preferred candidate will have ten-plus progressive years developing and executing marketing and public outreach initiatives through a variety of channels; experience supervising staff, advertising agencies, and consultants; and an accredited Bachelor’s in Marketing, Communications, Public Relations, Journalism, Business, or a related field. This is an excellent opportunity with a progressive transit agency that offers attractive compensation, relocation, and equal opportunity. While candidates outside of public transit will be considered, direct transportation experience carrying out campaigns that successfully built brand awareness and grew ridership and revenue is strongly preferred. VIA values diversity at all levels of its workforce — women and minorities are encouraged to apply.
