Marc Traasdahl is the Chief Financial Officer for the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC). He brings more than 25 years of broad accounting experience to the position from public, private and non-profit agencies, including a Big 8 CPA firm.
Marc is passionate about the work he and his team do to maintain a healthy bottom line and to provide accurate financial reporting for critical decision-making across all transportation services. He and his team are proud of the clean audit reports and reviews they have received year after year from external auditors, the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), the National Transit Database (NTD) and several departments of the State of Nevada.
Most significantly, Marc has led financial programs that have resulted in $52 million in interest savings through refunding several bond issues, and $128 million in fuel expense savings and additional grant opportunities by converting the RTC’s transit fleets to Compressed Natural Gas. His meticulous financial approach is critical in the oversight of the Fuel Revenue Indexing program, grant funding allocations and inter-local funding agreements.
Marc oversees all elements of finance, purchasing and contracts, fare policy & collection, short- and long-term operating and capital budgeting, grant reporting and administration, and the agency’s asset management system.
As a religious and community volunteer, Marc spends time providing food and resources to underserved populations and leadership training and activities for youth.
