Tina Quigley joined the LVGEA in February 2022. Her priorities for the agency include strengthening partnerships with regional economic development stakeholders and workforce training programs.
Prior to the LVGEA, Tina served as CEO for the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada. She oversaw the region’s public transportation, traffic management center, road construction and funding, and regional planning.
During her tenure, Quigley embraced and fought for sweeping technological advances, advocated for comprehensive future planning, and built critical partnerships to position the Las Vegas Valley for ongoing and sustained economic vitality. She believes firmly in approaching regional projects with collaborative, multiagency communication, and public inclusion. Many of the RTC’s successes during her tenure can be credited to this collaborative approach. Specific examples include: the Transportation Resource Advisory Committee (TRAC), the Fuel Revenue Indexing (FRI) tax initiative, and execution of the Southern Nevada Strong regional plan.
Quigley began her career as a planner at Harry Reid International Airport where, over 15 years, she grew to oversee the major capital projects program. She is a licensed pilot and holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Airport Planning & Development from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and is an alumnus of Harvard Business School’s Program for Leadership Development.
She is active on several boards including Workforce Connections, NV GrantLab, Fulfillment Fund of Las Vegas, Desert Research Institute, and the Nevada Chapter of the International Women’s Forum.
