Innovative Finance: Creative Options to Fund Transportation in Massachusetts

Dana Levenson, Chief Financial Officer, Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT)
Transportation funding is a hot topic in Massachusetts as the Legislature reviews a dramatic funding proposal from the Governor. While the current discussion focuses on many traditional sources of revenue, other innovative options exist. In his role as MassDOT CFO and drawing on his past experience, Dana Levenson will discuss other transportation financing options and their potential in Massachusetts. Levenson is the former Managing Director and Head of Infrastructure Banking, Americas for The Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) and served previously as the City of Chicago’s chief financial officer. In that role, he had oversight of the city comptroller's office and the departments of budget and management, procurement services and revenue. Levenson was responsible for the long-term leases of both the Chicago Skyway for $1.83 billion in 2005 and the Chicago Downtown Parking System in 2006 for $563 million. Levenson previously served as a managing director with Bank One and Bank of America. He received his bachelor's degree in European history from Brown University and his MBA from New York University.
