Joint Powers Authority (TJPA) Executive Director, replacing Maria Ayerdi Kaplan.  This, in response to assertions that the Department of Public Works, and not the TJPA, took over the Transit Center Project.

, CA (April 22, 2016) – The Transbay Joint Powers Authority (TJPA) is pleased to announce that earlier today the TJPA Board of Directors appointed Mark Zabaneh to the role of interim executive director effective May 1, 2016.

Since starting at TJPA in 2013, Zabaneh has led the agency’s program management team. Under his leadership, the remaining major construction contracts for Phase 1 were successfully bid out and preparations for Phase 2 design and construction have progressed. He also served as the primary staff liaison during a recent regional cost review and coordinated staff efforts to reduce costs and make necessary budget adjustments to keep construction progressing and deliver Phase 1 on schedule.

“Mark has the knowledge of and familiarity with the Transbay Project necessary to jump in immediately and take the helm of the TJPA,” said TJPA Board of Directors Chair Greg Harper. “We are fortunate that we can enable a smooth transition with Mark stepping up to serve as interim executive director. I and the other TJPA Directors look forward to continuing to work with him in this new capacity.”

Zabaneh came to the TJPA following a 26-year career with the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans). While at Caltrans, Zabaneh served as Deputy District Director for Program/Project Management in charge of the Capital Program for the nine Bay Area counties and led project management activities on a range of efforts, including the Caldecott Tunnel 4th Bore Project. His Caltrans experience also includes serving as Project Manager on the San Mateo/Hayward Bridge East Approach Widening Project and the State Route 92/I-880 Interchange Project and as Assistant Structures Representative on the Cypress Reconstruction Project.

During his tenure at TJPA, Zabaneh has been involved in many aspects of the oversight of the Transbay Transit Center. Zabaneh’s expertise and familiarity with the Transbay Project will be a valuable asset as the Center enters the final stage of construction and prepares for its late 2017 grand opening.

“It is an honor to be asked to lead the TJPA, and I look forward to continuing our progress in the coming months,” said Zabaneh. “I am excited to continue to partner with the TJPA Board of Directors, staff, and program and construction teams to deliver the Transit Center to the community and see the heart of ’s new downtown come to life in just under two years.”

Zabaneh is a licensed civil engineer in the state of California and a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelor of Science degree in civil engineering.
