Frank began his tenure as Via’s Chief Executive Officer in 2016. Before joining the Via team as an employee, he served for seven years on its Board of Directors. Two of those years he was Board President. Serving in this capacity gave Frank a deep insight into the importance of Via’s work and provided him insight into the areas that the organization could grow.
To Frank, mobility is about dignity and independence. At one point, Frank experienced the need for Via’s services firsthand. After foot surgery, he could not drive for nine weeks, and used Via’s Paratransit service to get to and from work each day.
Frank earned his Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Studies and Business from St. John’s University in New York City and his Master of Science in Labor and Industrial Relations and Human Resources Management. Before Via, he served the following roles in Boulder: President and CEO of Western Disposal, City Manager, and Vice Chancellor for the University of Colorado. Before then he was Assistant City Manager for the City of Fort Collins. He began his career in New York City as a project manager and later as Assistant Vice President for the Brooklyn Navy Yard Corporation.
“I am very honored to lead this organization. After a career spanning more than 40 years, Via is indeed a highlight for me,” Frank said. He is proud to be an integral part of building an exceptional team of employees dedicated to all the people Via serves.
Frank lives in Boulder with his wife, two sons, and three dogs. He is an avid writer of stories, loves to try to play guitar, and is absolutely nuts about dogs.
