A Change at the OMF

December 9, 2021

A Note from our Executive Director:

As you may know, I will be stepping down as Executive Director of the Open Mobility Foundation later this month to join the City of Boston as Chief of Streets under Mayor Michelle Wu. The opportunity to return to direct public service was unexpected, but I realized I couldn’t pass up the chance to help our new Mayor implement her ambitious transportation agenda.

The OMF Board will appoint an Interim Executive Director and begin the search process for a permanent replacement immediately. The OMF community is fortunate to have an amazing staff, membership, and a Board of Directors committed to a seamless transition, building new tools and supporting our community in the years to come.

Leading the OMF since its founding has truly been an honor. Together we have made the vision for the OMF real—by building a new model for how local governments manage their streets with technology, by demonstrating new ways for cities to collaborate with the private sector, and by developing new connections, channels, and colleagues across our shared networks. The OMF has a lot of important work and success ahead of it, and I know it will continue to thrive with all of your participation.

Thank you for your continued support, and please don’t hesitate to reach out to the OMF team if you have any questions. I hope to stay connected with you in the years ahead, and perhaps even see you at an OMF community event soon!
