NCTD Chief Technology &
Sustainability Officer wins award
The North County Transit District Chief Technology and Sustainability Officer Angela K. Miller was awarded the Cox Business Exemplary Awardat the San Diego Business Journal’s 3rd Annual Information Technology Executive of the Year event on Thursday, May 6.
The Information Technology Executive Awards recognize the outstanding information technology executives who work in San Diego. The finalists were selected by an independent panel of judges.
Since her arrival at the North County Transit District a little more than two years ago, Miller has transformed the function of NCTD’s information technology department. Not only did she overhaul and update NCTD’s entire network infrastructure, she also implemented a technology recycling program, managed the installment of NCTD’s first solar system, and built one of the public transit industry’s first green data centers. Based on energy savings, the data center will provide a 15-year return on investment.
Miller’s passion is combining sustainability and information technology. She has brought in more than $4 million in competitive grant funds, and made NCTD a showcase for new technologies in areas ranging from security to operations.
“From day one, Ms. Miller dedicated herself to improving NCTD’s technology and our overall sustainability,” said Executive Director Matt Tucker. “Because of her hard work and leadership in the department, our technology not only reduces our environmental impact, but also our overall expenses.”
