WTS-Boston March Luncheon - Revitalizing the Port of Boston with Lisa Wieland

11:30 AM - 01:15 PM Eastern Standard Time



On Thursday March 22nd, WTS-Boston will host a luncheon seminar featuring Lisa S. Wieland, Port Director for the Massachusetts Port Authority, to discuss Revitalizing the Port of Boston.  Lisa will be introduced by Anne Aylward, Director of the U.S. DOT Volpe Center.  Anne was the first woman to serve as Massport’s Port Director and the first woman elected to chair the American Association of Port Authorities.

Lisa Wieland has served as Port Director since March of 2015. In her current role, and previously as Maritime’s Chief Administrative Officer, she leads all financial management, business planning, strategic initiatives, process improvement, special projects, and the day-to-day management of the Maritime division. Before joining the Maritime Team, Lisa served in several roles at Massport, including the Director of Corporate Planning and Analysis and the Director of HR Strategy & Employment.

Prior to her employment with Massport, Lisa worked as a Consultant for Bain & Company serving health care and consumer products clients, and previous to that, for CNN in various news and political assignments. Lisa received her BA Degree from UCLA in Political Science, and her MBA from the Harvard Business School.


Anne Aylward is the Director of the U.S. Department of Transportation’s John A. Volpe National Transportation Systems Center, a unique fee-for-service federal organization that conducts nearly $300 million annually in transportation technology and innovation projects supporting all the modes of U.S. DOT.

In this role, Aylward leads Volpe’s staff of more than 600 engineers, scientists, and analysts engaged in a portfolio of projects that encompass all of Volpe’s innovation, technology, engineering, transportation program analysis, and systems development. Volpe staff support not only U.S. DOT but also the Department of Defense, other federal agencies, state and local governments, and international and other organizations facing transportation challenges. Previously, Aylward served as Volpe’s Deputy Director for Research and Technology.

Aylward has more than 30 years’ experience in transportation planning, operations, and program management, and is a nationally recognized expert in freight and intermodal transportation planning, policy analysis, and operations.

Prior to joining Volpe's management team, she managed the transportation planning practice of EG&G, a division of the URS Corporation. From 1976 to 1993, she worked for the Massachusetts Port Authority, including 10 years as director of the Port of Boston. She was the first woman elected to chair the American Association of Port Authorities, and, as executive director of the National Commission on Intermodal Transportation, was primary author of the Commission’s 1994 Report to Congress.
