NET RMA Appoints Glenn Green as New Executive Director
(Tyler, TX) – The North East Texas Regional Mobility Authority (NET RMA) announced today that TxDOT veteran and Tyler native Glenn Green has been named the organization’s new executive director.
Green brings over 35 years of Texas Department of Transportation experience to the role. Prior to joining NET RMA, he served as TxDOT district engineer in Atlanta and, most recently, in Tyler.
“I’ve been impressed with how NET RMA is fulfilling its vision of providing transportation solutions that enhance the quality of life and economic environment in our area,” said Green. “As Northeast Texas continues to thrive and grow, NET RMA is going to play a critical role in advancing the area’s transportation infrastructure that will connect area residents to each other and to businesses across the region.”
During Green’s time at TxDOT, he collaborated with local leadership on the establishment of NET RMA in 2004. He also worked on the development and construction of Toll 49 from its inception through all five segments before it became a tolled facility, then with NET RMA through the transfer of ownership.
In his role as district engineer at TxDOT, Green led district operations and engineering oversight of all activities in the Tyler area, including transportation planning for all long- and near-term projects, right-of-way design, construction, inspection, maintenance, emergency response operations, and safety and environmental functions.
“Glenn’s transportation experience and familiarity with the infrastructure needs across NET RMA member counties is an invaluable perspective that will be essential to the success of the organization,” said Andrea Williams-McCoy, NET RMA board member representing Bowie county. “I am confident Glenn will guide NET RMA to reach its full potential in serving the needs of our communities in Northeast Texas.”
Green graduated from Texas A&M University with a bachelor of applied science in civil engineering.
