Giello joining Austin Transit Partnership

Thursday, July 29, 2021 by Jo Clifton

After a little more than 23 years with the city of Austin, Rebecca Giello is retiring – but only from the city. She will be taking on a new role with a new agency, Austin Transit Partnership, in August. Giello is joining ATP within the People, Administration and Management work group. She told the Austin Monitor her duties will include managing and coordinating startup activities and improving organizational efficiency. The new agency, an offshoot of Capital Metropolitan Transportation Authority, is an independent local government corporation created to design, construct and implement Project Connect. Giello started working for the city in 1998 with the city manager’s office, moved to the Communications Department and then to Neighborhood Housing and Community Development. She became assistant director in 2017 and was tapped to be interim director of the Economic Development Department. She returned to Housing as deputy director and will be retiring from that position this week. Mandy De Mayo will take over as deputy director in August. In moving over to ATP, Giello will be joining a number of other former city executives, including former city Deputy CFO Greg Canally, who is now ATP’s chief financial officer and chief development officer. Others who have joined ATP include Budget Director Diane Siler and Real Estate Director Alex Gale, who both held similar jobs with the city.


This whisper has been changed since publication to update Canally’s title.
