Aubin and Booterbaugh will operate from RATP Dev USA’s corporate headquarters in Fort Worth, Texas.

RATP Dev USA appointed Cyril Aubin, former managing director of Hong Kong Tramways, as the company's new CEO and Matt Booterbaugh as deputy CEO.

“I am thrilled to join the RATP Dev USA team at such a crucial yet exciting time and I look forward to building off of the great work the team has already accomplished,” Aubin said. “RATP Dev USA understands the future of public transit, and I’m eager to lead the company into its next stage of growth, serving transit authorities across the country during this age of innovation and unlimited potential.”

Aubin is a seasoned RATP Group executive with more than 20 years of experience in the transit industry. He joins the U.S. from Hong Kong where he served as managing director of Hong Kong Tramways, a heritage system used by more than 55 million annual customers. Under Aubin's strategic leadership, several fundamental works and cultural changes were initiated to sustain the Hong Kong icon, including asset modernization, business diversification and brand development, supply chain optimization, digitalization, partnerships and others.

In addition to Aubin becoming CEO, Matt Booterbaugh, who joined RATP Dev USA in December of 2017 as senior vice president of operations and innovation and took over as chief development officer in April of 2020, has been appointed as deputy CEO. This newly created role will ensure that everything impacting clients – from operations to customer relations to maintenance – is grouped together under one leader. This strategic approach aims to place RATP Dev USA at the forefront of delivering customized transit solutions backed by the legacy of RATP Group and the expertise developed throughout its United States operations.

“I’m looking forward to my new role as deputy CEO and continuing to ensure the company’s advancement, growth and continuous improvement,” Booterbaugh said. “It’s my goal to set the standards of the industry when it comes to safety and security and I look forward to continuing to develop and execute industry leading day-to-day best practices as deputy CEO."

Aubin and Booterbaugh will operate from RATP Dev USA’s corporate headquarters in Fort Worth, Texas.
