Welcoming Paige Gibson to the Transportation Technology Center Team!

We are proud to announce the hire of Paige Gibson this week as the new Site Director at the Transportation Technology Center (TTC). Paige officially started with us on July 8, bringing her extensive experience and expertise to our team.

About Paige Gibson

Paige Gibson has a distinguished 13-year career in the rail industry, having started with BNSF in 2011. She is highly skilled in people management, team development, training, and union relations, making her an ideal fit for her new role at the TTC.

Her journey began at BNSF, where she spent several years in the Transportation department. During her tenure, she managed over 200 union employees in the Chicago Division and played an instrumental role in implementing Positive Train Control (PTC) and Trip Optimization Systems. Paige’s leadership and dedication to safety were evident as she trained employees, conducted safety audits, and ensured compliance with federal regulations.

Following her time at BNSF, Paige joined Metra as a Safety Project Manager. In this role, she was responsible for maintaining Metra’s PTC Safety Plan, conducting risk assessments, and collaborating with other railroads and the FRA. Her ability to build relationships with internal and external stakeholders, including contractors and government agencies, was key to Metra’s success in these initiatives.

Paige’s career then took her to Union Pacific, where she supervised the implementation of PTC across their system, conducted operations and safety audits, and was actively involved in union bargaining agreements. Her exceptional ability to train and educate employees on new technologies and safety protocols set her apart as a leader in the industry.

Most recently, Paige served as the General Superintendent of Transportation for the Regional Transportation District (RTD) in Denver, CO. Overseeing 12 Transportation Supervisors and approximately 80 union staff, she was responsible for hiring, training, and building a safety-first culture among the transportation employees. Her work directly with the union on discipline, grievances, and collective bargaining agreements further showcases her expertise in managing complex operations.

Additionally, Paige worked briefly with ESi as a Senior Consultant, focusing on accident/incident investigation and reconstruction and training.
