Congratulations to CMT’s Cassie Reiter, who has been honored as the inaugural recipient of the 2019 WTS of Greater Indianapolis Woman of the Year! With the goal of Advancing Women in Transportation, the organization recognized Cassie for her professional commitment to projects that improve quality of place and her success in advancing diversity.
The Women in Transportation Seminar (WTS) is an international organization with local chapters. The award event was held Thursday evening, December 12th, at the Alexander Hotel in downtown Indianapolis, IN. Cassie will now be a candidate for national recognition at the WTS Annual Awards Banquet, to be held in Phoenix in 2020.
“Cassie is an exceptional example of leadership at CMT,” says CMT President Bill Bailey. “She has strong technical and project management skills but also brings a heightened level of passion and energy to everything she does.”
With CMT since 1998, Cassie is a senior engineer and project manager in our Surface Transportation unit. She began her career in the St. Louis office and then responded to the invitation to move to Indianapolis in 2007, where she helped support the growth of that office. She was the project manager for several major placemaking projects, including Georgia Street Revitalization project (Superbowl Village) and Pacers Training Center in Indianapolis, the Trades District Project in Bloomington, and numerous other projects for the City of Indianapolis and INDOT. She is also leading the West Florissant Avenue Great Street project in St. Louis County.
Cassie is also committed to meaningful participation in industry organizations that promote women in transportation. She is an active member of the American Society of Civil Engineers, Indy CREW (Commercial Real Estate Women), Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure, and Indiana Association of Cities and Towns. Within CMT, Cassie is a respected colleague and mentor, where she regularly shares her insights, promotes industry involvement, and helps guide younger staff—particularly women—to help them realize their full potential and career goals.
CMT is proud of Cassie and appreciates all that she does to elevate CMT and women in the engineering profession.
