Johann likes to introduce himself as a “transportation nerd.” It’s probably accurate–and in the best way. Johann is enthusiastic about new transportation technologies and legislation, and he offers unique insights into how these shifts can affect transportation landscape.
Johann has six years of professional experience in transportation demand management. As the Program Manager for the Perimeter Connects transportation management association, Johann directs program development and partner services for some of Atlanta’s most iconic employers, including State Farm, Mercedes-Benz, and Cox Enterprises. Under his leadership, Perimeter Connects developed a relational database to bring better analytics into the fold of service delivery, evaluation, and planning.
Johann completed his doctoral studies in public policy at Georgia Tech with a focus on transportation and the environment. He has published peer-reviewed research in the journals Transportation Policy and Transportation Research: Policy and Practice. Johann is also a member of the 2020 class of the Association for Commuter Transportation’s ACT ImpACT! Leadership program.
Johann is an avid mountain biker and spends his time away from Atlanta hiking and camping with his wife, son, and daughter. He also has a beloved dog Gus who can sometimes be found in the UrbanTrans office following everyone around.
