 Carla Romero Perez of Jacobs and Del Walker of Parsons have been added as board members for 2014 by Move Colorado.

Perez will serve as vice president and Walker will serve as secretary.

The new board members will join at a critical juncture in the future of transportation funding in Colorado, Move said in a news release.

The state is at risk of falling behind, no longer able to afford needed improvements to its transportation infrastructure.

“Already leaders in the transportation industry, Carla and Del are two very meaningful additions to Move Colorado,” said Melissa Osse, Move Colorado executive director. “They bring years of experience and expertise to the table that will greatly benefit our continuing efforts to solve transportation funding issues throughout Colorado – issues that grow more concerning as time goes by.”

Perez has 23 years of experience in executive management and advisory services specializing in transportation policy, finance, administration, project and program development and is currently a senior consultant with Jacobs. Previously she served as the assistant general manager for administration at the Regional Transportation District, served in Governor Bill Ritter’s administration and was CDOT’s first policy director.

Prior to his work at Parsons, he spent two years as deputy assistant general manager of Capital Programs at Regional Transportation District . Before RTD, Walker was the director of staff branches at the Colorado Department of Transportation. He also served as deputy project director on Metro Denver’s Transportation Expansion Project.

 Perez and Walker join a board consisting of President Jeff Kullman of Atkins, and Treasurer Ken Rudolph of Nolte.

 Move Colorado is a private industry organization that provides information, sponsors education programs and supports the efforts of Colorado community, business and political leaders to solve transportation funding issues.
